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.

The uncertainty about US intentions actually strengthens SDF position, a bit. Both against Turkey and against Assad. Meanwhile, they are building up their forces and will be securing their backs by clamping down on sleeper cells.

Actually, they have a powerful bargain chip towards Assad coming from it : either he’s into giving concessions to SDC or Syria will end balkanised : Either US/EU provide them serious air-defences and they’re likely to unite with KRG, or the Turks manage to invade and wont give Rojava back, as they did with the Antioche province or Northern Cyprus, or else Assad considers federalism or serious autonomy, then he can deploy SAA there.

In fact, Arabs are a tiny minority in Syria. By importance, ethnic groups are
#1 Aramaeans (ethnic Jews who 1st converted to Christianity then were forced into Islam! Jesus used to speak Aramaic = Syriac! Yup, it can drive many AMN readers mad but that is the truth!)
#2 Assyrians
#3 Kurds
Syrians are NOT Arabs!

But thats genetics. We can find many emmigrants here feeling they are danish even their DNA is not at all or half or 1/4.

The same goes for arabs. Even genetics says kind of 17%, then about 70% feel they are arabs – incl. Christian ones.

“Aramaeic” is not about genes, but language: in the Old Iranian Empire, it swiftly substituted other semitic languages, including Palestine Hebrew. Jesus spoke Aramaeic, Flavius Josephus spoke Greek; most of that age’s Latin speakers wern’t ethnical Romans, most Greek speakers wern’t Greeks – and most Aramaeic speakers wern’t Aramaeans.
So please stopp kidding & do a bit of resaerch.
