BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Council told the Bas News Agency on Sunday that peace negotiations with Damascus were to resume in the near future.
Speaking to Bas News on Sunday, SDC councilmen Azad Birazi said that the Syrian government has shown positive signs about self-governance in northern Syria.
The report did not delve further into the issue; however, in the past, the peace talks have stalled due to disagreements about federalization and Kurdish autonomous rule in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
In regards to the U.S. withdrawal from Syria, Birazi told Bas News that the Syrian Democratic Forces, the armed wing of the SDC, that the Americans have shown no concrete signs of leaving the country.
This coincides with the latest reports about the U.S. military increasing their troop presence inside Syria, despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s vow to withdraw his armed forces from the country.
