On 6 September, the Syrian Democratic Forces (which serve as the armed forces of the NES) agreed with the Syrian army to open a new crossing point near the town of Al-Salihiyah, which would promote trade and trade between local populations living in areas controlled by the Syrian government or . Nes. [95] In an interview in March 2017, Zaynab Jamil Kanbar, co-head of the Manbij Board of Directors, founded on 12 March, said that 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). [53] On 4 April, pro-government NDF forces shot at an Asay police vehicle and killed an officer in Asayish. [121] On 21 April, further clashes broke out in the Al-Qamishli district between the pro-government national defence power and the paramilitary forces of Asayish, near Rojava, which led to a Russian intervention to end hostilities. The Syrian Communist Party welcomed the agreement [122] ARRAF: We were actually able to see them on the side of the road on the outskirts of this town called Amuda, a few kilometers from the Turkish border, but outside of what is widely regarded as the agreement for Turkish-Russian patrols. For example, the commander of the Syrian-Kurdish forces, General Mazloum Abdi, announced today that he had reached the agreement. And he is with the commander of Russian forces in Syria for the deployment of Russian troops in three new areas, including this one. “In accordance with the (Erdogan-Putin) agreement, the SDF is moving to new azenweg azenweg positions on the Turkish-Syrian border via northeastern Syria to stop the bloodshed and protect the people of the region from Turkish attacks,” the SDF said in a statement.

I think for the United States, it was a very pure fictitious marriage. I mean, after meeting Mazlum, I went to interview American soldiers who knew him and worked with them. And most of those who were there said, oh, yes, we know exactly who those boys were. And so I think the U.S. government knew about it at the time of the K.K.P., but it`s not a band that has much resonance in the United States. They never attacked American interests. They have never been active or significantly active in the United States. That is why I think that for American politicians who were also in a state of emergency and were trying to understand what we were doing against the Islamic State, that was the best way to do that. And that`s it.

I mean, it worked. But there has never been an agreement on what happens after the disappearance of the Islamic State, what is happening in this region, which is in control. It was a question that hung over American politics: Is it ok, what`s next? 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.
