Kurdish official asks for US clarifications over Syria withdrawal

A Syrian Kurdish official says that Syria’s Kurds are awaiting clarifications from the US over its plans to pull out its troops from Syria, following comments made by a top White House aide that appeared to contradict earlier comments by US President Donald Trump.

Badran Ciya Kurd says the Kurds have not been informed of any change in the US position and were in the dark about the latest comments by US national security adviser John Bolton and what they indicated.

“We have not been formally or directly notified, all what we heard were media statements,” he says.
