The United States plans to use possible liberation of Syria's Raqqa, the so-called capital of Daesh terrorist group, to reach its own political goals at Geneva talks, member of the Syrian parliament Omar Ose told Sputnik on Sunday.

DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which includes the Kurdish People's Defense Units (YPG), supported by Washington started an operation to liberate Daesh-occupied Raqqa from jihadists.

"The aim of the United States is [to establish] control over Raqqa and to use this success for political purposes at the negotiations in Geneva to resist Russia's project," Ose said.

He added that Raqqa was not located in the Kurdish-populated area and Ankara would oppose Kurdish control over the city.

"If the United States secures a victory in Raqqa via the YPG fighters, then Kurds will be sold to the Turkish authorities, who search any pretext [to weaken Kurds]. Kurdish cantons in Qamishli, Kobani and Afrin irritate them [Turks], and they will not allow to create any new [Kurdish] entity," Ose added.
