BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Kurds are seeking a political settlement with the Syrian government regardless of the U.S.’ withdrawal from the country, a Kurdish official told the Reuters News Agency on Friday.

Speaking to Reuters on Friday, the Kurdish official, Badran Jia Kurd, said that the Syrian Kurds were seeking a peaceful settlement with Damascus and will continue to move in this direction.

“The final decision is (to reach an) agreement with Damascus, we will work in this direction regardless of the cost, even if the Americans object,” Jia Kurd said in the northern Syrian city of Qamishli.

“Our view is that (Russia) is trying to open new horizons with Damascus, this is what we sensed from them,” he continued.

“The ball is in the court of Russia and Damascus,” Jia Kurd said. “On this basis, we can negotiate and start a dialogue.”

The Kurdish official said that working with the Syrian government to get end the Turkish military’s occupation of some parts of Syria would help bring an end to the conflict.

“This will give a big push towards ending the occupation and terrorism in Syria,” he added.

Currently, the Syrian government and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Council are in talks about reconciling and defending the country from the upcoming Turkish military invasion.
