BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Council has recently intensified their talks with the government in a bid to resolve their disputes and seek a peaceful settlement, a source told Al-Masdar News from Damascus.

According to the government source, the Syrian Democratic Council is working with Damascus to prevent a Turkish military invasion in the northern part of the country, while also making strides to end the political deadlock between the two entities.

The source said that the Syrian Democratic Council is seeking political autonomy in their areas, but they do not want to separate from the state.

In turn, the Syrian government has rejected the idea of federalization but is reportedly open to the idea of joint control of the SDF-held area until the war is over.

Both parties agree that the primary concern as of now is the impending Turkish military operation which seeks to expel the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and People’s Protection Units (YPG) from northern and eastern Syria.
