SDF's Commander in Chief: We are ready to negotiate with Turkey but on two basic conditions

The Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces, Mazloum Abdi, identified two basic conditions for accepting negotiations with Turkey during the period he called "after the elimination of Daesh."

The speech of the Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces(SDF), Mazloum Abdi, came at a ceremony organized by the Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, held in the city of Kobanî in which he said,

"The civil and military administration of northern and eastern Syria is ready to open negotiations with Turkey in the next stage, provided that the latter leaves Afrin," which has been occupied by the Turkish army since March 2018."

Abdi pointed out that the other condition includes the final abandonment of Turkey from the threat of areas of northern and eastern Syria, "and the national forces in Syria after that will work to bring peace in the phase following the stage of the elimination of Daesh in the country."

Abdi stressed at the same time that their forces have the right to defend their areas against any threat or attack that would undermine the security of Syria, especially the northern regions.
