BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – A preliminary agreement was made between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) in northern Syria, a source told Al-Masdar this afternoon.

According to the source, the YPG has agreed to remove all posters of ‘Abdullah Ocalan from streets and areas under their control in Al-Hasakah.

Furthermore, the YPG will allow the Syrian Army to reopen recruitment offices in the Al-Haakah Governorate.

This preliminary agreement comes after the government met with Kurdish delegates in both Damascus and Qamishli city.

A military source told Al-Masdar News that the government and Kurdish Democratic Federation of Northern Syria are now discussing the possibility of setting up joint checkpoints in Al-Hasakah.

The source continued that the government is attempting to convince the Kurdish Democratic Federation to agree to the following:

  • Join forces with the government across the country
  • Handover the Tal Kojar and Simalka border-crossings into Iraq
  • Handover the Al-Darbasiyah and Ras Al-‘Ayn border-crossing into Turkey

The YPG is asking in return that the government make the Kurdish language a part of the Syrian educational system, count the period the YPG fighters served as service in the SAA, and give a Kurdish official a permanent seat in the Syrian oil ministry.

True diplomacy is a far better option than war.

The quotation ” Jaw Jaw is better than War War ” is a skill that the US have largely abandoned, to the detriment of the world and even the bulk of the American People.

Turds are nomadic traitors. You don’t give land and resources to gypsies and Bedouins do you? F the Turds. They made their choice. Fact is that Syria can never trust these medieval @ssholes ever. Make then work hard for their opportunistic policies.

Your sectarian propaganda gets more absurd by the day – “Kurdish” Democratic Federation of Northern Syria? LOL. It’s more Syrian than you are, Leith.

You “Pete” are amongst the problems for Syria. Leith is a *huge* part of the solution for Syria. If the Kurdish dominated north and the rest of Syria can get on the same page; Syria can become whole again. The Kurdish vision of their future *includes* Syria. If President Assad treats them fairly: they will remove America from their territory and rejoin their brothers and sisters.

If not: war looms and another phase of death, destruction and suffering awaits. For no need!
