YPG spokesman Redur Khalil made statements about the recent developments in Syria. Khalil argued that the existence of the YPG should continue in northern Syria, but the agreement with the Syrian government is "inevitable".

As AFP reports, Khalil said that "an agreement between the autonomous government and the Syrian government is inevitable because our regions are a part of Syria". 

"Negotiations with the government are continuing to reach a final solution of how Manbij will be governed," Khalil said, mentioning there are "positive signs".

The spokesman also argued if the agreement reached with the Syrian government is positive, it can be applied not only for Manbij but also for the whole region.

After the US decided to withdraw from the region, the YPG had started talks with the Syrian government.

The general commander of People’s Protection Units (YPG), Sipan Hemo, spoke to Saudi-owned London-based Şarku'l Avsat newspaper on possible cooperation with Syria against Turkey, calling the Syrian government to protect the country's borders and territory.

The surprise announcement that the US would withdraw all its troops from Syria came as shocking news for the American-backed YPG and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
