The Syrian Kurds cooperate with the United States and all other countries offering their assistance in the fight against the Daesh jihadist group, a representative of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) said.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Washington to choose between the partnership with Turkey and Kurdish forces, which Ankara claims are linked to the pro-independence Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militant movement, considered a terrorist organization by Turkey.

"The Americans have been helping [the Kurds to fight against Daesh] for almost a year and a half… the Kurds were forced to cooperate when the Americans came to help. When the enemy comes at you, destroys you… who would not agree?" Abd Salam Muhammad Ali told RIA Novosti on Sunday.
