    More results of talks of the Syrian government and the Syrian Kurds emerge. According to sources, the SDF will open offices in Latakia, Damascus, Hama, and Homs. The Kurds will control Syria´s Hasakah province, the Tischreen Dam will be under joint control. This is still not official.

    "The political wing of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is going to open offices in several provinces inside Syria, the Spokesperson of the SDF, Ilham Ahmad, said on Thursday.

    According to Ahmad, the SDF’s political wing will be opening offices in the provinces of Latakia, Damascus, Hama, and Homs.

    This move comes after another meeting between the Syrian government and Syrian Democratic Council (SDF) in northern Syria.

    Earlier in the week, it was announced that the SDF and Syrian government would have joint control over the Tishreen Dam in western Al-Raqqa.

    While some members of the SDC deny the government has reached out to mend relations, a source in Damascus told Al-Masdar this week that peace talks are going well.

    This same source told Al-Masdar two weeks that the government and SDC reached an agreement in the Al-Hasakah Governorate that would allow for the former to eventually control the province.

    Al-Masdar is awaiting a response regarding the latest claims by Ilham Ahmad’s comments."

    Kurds will hand over areas to the government.

    “This meeting led to the adoption of decision to form committees at various levels to develop dialogue and negotiations, ensure the end of violence and the conflict that endangers the Syrian people and society, and to chart a roadmap towards a decentralized, democratic Syria,” the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) announced in a brief statement Saturday morning.

    According to media sources, negotiations were held between SDF and Damascus, in which Kurds participated close to the Syrian government. The results were positive, resulting in the initial acceptance of SDF to hand over the city of Al-Raqqa, large neighborhoods of Al-Hasakah, and its security branches to the Syrian authorities.

    Salih Muslim, who heads up foreign relations in the SDF, clarified that the talks with Damascus are very much in the preliminary stages.

    The sources said that the Executive Council of the “Syrian Democratic Forces” informed Damascus that the United States intends to withdraw its troops and military bases from the Syrian territory and they will arrange the process of withdrawal with the Russian party in the coming period."
