LATAKIA, October 29 /TASS/. Pentagon is starting consultations on all-round support for the Kurdish militias in Syria’s Northern provinces, including training and delivery of weapons and military hardware, a source close to the Kurdish militias said.
"Everything is ready. The People’s Defense Forces of the Syrian Kurdistan may hold their first meeting with US intelligence representatives already this week," the source clarified.
According to the source, the sides will discuss the deadlines and volumes of the military assistance and draw up a list of priority professions, in which the Kurdish militias have the greatest demand.
"If the aid program is launched successfully, it may become the first step on the way towards recognition of the Syrian Kurdistan as a free state," the source said commenting the mood among the Kurdish militias.
