ERBIL — US Special Envoy for Syria James Jeffrey on Sunday arrived in the Syrian Kurdistan to meet with Kurdish political parties, a local source told BasNews.
Jeffrey is expected to hold separate discussions with the Syrian Kurdish National Council (ENKS) and the Democratic Union Party (PYD).
The two Kurdish factions recently announced that they had reached a potential agreement that could address their political disputes and create an atmosphere for their coexistence.
The US envoy will also discuss the Syrian regime with both the Kurdish and Arab opposition. The Kurds had recently complained that the Syrian regime had excluded them from the Geneva negotiation process.
