US, Turkey Set For Negotiations On Fate Of Kurds

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton has arrived in Turkey for negotiations on the fate of American-allied Kurdish fighters in Syria. Bolton will seek assurances from the NATO ally that it won’t attack the Kurds when the U.S. withdraws troops from northeastern Syria. Monday’s visit comes a day after Bolton said such guarantees were a “condition” of the pullout President Donald Trump ordered last month. Turkey considers the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or YPG, a terrorist group linked to an insurgency within its borders, and has threatened to mount an assault on the groups that have fought alongside U.S. troops against the Islamic State in Syria. Bolton, who is expected to meet Tuesday with Turkish officials including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that’s unacceptable.

If US have thought about a Kurds destiny, they had to talk about this before their official decision to pull troops out.

It will be an "accident" or "oversight," I'm sure. Kurds has no any chance...Sad.

Generally, all story about Syria and Kurds are weird.... So, Turkey accuses the Kurds of wanting to destabilize Turkey and labelled them "Terrorist", here are their NATO allies the US saying don't touch them they are our allies !? Who are the true allies? One more of many a paradox in modern world.

Kurds between two fires: Turkey from one side, Assad from the other side ... C’mon, this is hypocrisy

" The US will pull out of Syria only with assurances Turkey will not attack Kurdish allies there - national security adviser John Bolton says..."

And Turkey gave a pinky promise... That should be interesting, how are they going to control and make sure it happens.

I heard yesterday that Erdogan was asking the U.S. to stay in Syria.  Wonder what's up with that?

To diminish the power of Iran perhaps.
