A People’s Protection Units (YPG) spokesman said that the Kurdish fighters are highly likely to join the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) after the two sides reach an agreement to take back the regions they have already lost to the Turkish army, Fars News reported.
Arabic-Language RT cited YPG senior spokesman Nuri Mahmud who said that “there is no obstacle facing cooperation between the Kurdish militants and the Syrian Army.”
He said that the YPG would join the SAA only after political agreements are concluded on how to form a joint army.
Mahmud also said that in the case the YPG joined the SAA, the Turkish occupied regions of Afrin, Jarablus, al-Bab and Idlib would be liberated from the control of Turkey and its allied militants.
He further said that the recapturing of Afrin is of utmost priority for the Kurdish people.
The Fars News report also reminded of remarks made in December by Mahmud claiming that YPG will lay down their arms only after peace returns to Syria.
A report by Jordanian news channel, al-Hadath was cited saying that according to Mahmud – the weapons supplied by the United States were used to combat terrorists.
The YPG also said that it had invited the Syrian ARmy the Manbij area to allegedly focus on the fight against ISIS on the eastern bank of the EuphratesRriver.
Following that, the SAA reportedly fortified its military positions near Manbij for a possible confrontation with Turkish-backed militants.
