Pentagon: US has concerns over Syrian Kurds expanding non-Kurdish territory in Syria.
Pentagon: US has concerns over Syrian Kurds expanding non-Kurdish territory in Syria. (Washingtonpoint).
US Defense Department's Cmdr. Elissa Smith who oversees the Syria file, responded my questions re latest airdrop of ammunition in northern Syria.
Smith stated: "This airdrop supported Arab groups. We share the concern of our Turkish partners over the sensitivity of expanding Kurdish control into traditionally non-Kurdish areas in Syria."
I never heard Pentagon or any US officials expressing "concerns" regarding Syrian Kurds' expanding in non-Kurdish areas in Syria.
With this statement, seems like US supports Turkey's "red line" which is for PYD or YPG not to cross over Jarablus and expand to west to link Afrin canton with Kobani. Read the full story here.
Hmmm.....The fact that Chinese Uighur's are re populating Syria doesn't bother them. Recent reports now reveal Turkey is populating this de facto statelet next to Hatay with Turkic settlements, especially Chinese Uyghur turks.
