Syria And Kurds Agreement

The finer details of the agreement have yet to be worked out, but a certain degree of Kurdish autonomy is expected to be maintained within the post-conflict political agreement. Nevertheless, it is unlikely that the basic demands of the Kurds for broad autonomy within a decentralized federal state in Syria and the preservation of the SDF as an independent military force are unlikely to be met. But the Kurds will feel a sense of success if their agreement with Syria prevents a wider Turkish invasion and the expulsion of the Kurdish population. BEIRUT (Reuters) – Syria`s foreign ministry said on Sunday that a U.S. oil company had signed an agreement with Kurdish-led rebels controlling oil fields in the northeast, calling it an illegal deal to “steal” crude from Syria. The Kurdish government in northern Syria said the Syrian army would park along the entire length of the border as part of the deal. Damascus “strongly condemns the agreement between the al-Qasd militia (SDF) and a U.S. oil company to steal Syrian oil under the aegis and support of the U.S. government,” he said in the Syrian statement. “This agreement is null and void and has no legal basis.” ARRAF: Well, it`s basically that they need protection, and that`s the protection they lost when the U.S. withdrew from the border areas that allowed Turkish troops to invade the country in October.

I spoke to a spokesman for the Syrian-Kurdish forces, and he said they had lost 4000 square km. And basically, they don`t have many good options here. They will probably have to sit down and negotiate with the Syrian regime from which they have parted, which also means reaching an agreement with Russia`s allies in Syria. While the Turkish invasion was underway, the decision of the United States to withdraw all its forces from northeastern Syria resulted in a military agreement between the Syrian regime and the SDF on 13 October. In an interview in March 2017, Zaynab Jamil Kanbar, co-head of the Manbij board of directors, founded on 12 March, said there was no Syrian government presence in the city of Manbij and that the Council had “refused any cooperation with the regime”. However, the Syrian army and Russian forces agreed in February with the Manbij Military Council to hand over several villages west of Manbij during the East Aleppo offensive (January to March 2017).

On 3 July, the Syrian Communist Party welcomed the agreement [122] On 3 July, the Neg/SDF authorities removed several YPG flags and portraits of Abdullah Ocalan of towns and towns under their control in northern Syria. Media close to the government reported that this was the result of a preliminary agreement between the NES/SDF and the Syrian government, in which it promised to include the Kurdish language in the Syrian national programme, to consider military service in the YPG as analogous to the service of the Syrian army (for the purposes of veteran status and military pensions), as well as the creation of a permanent post for a Kurdish official within the Syrian Ministry.
