Syria's Policy Unlikely to Change Under New Prime Minister - PYD
MOSCOW (Sputnik) Ankara should make amends with Syrian President Bashar Assad especially since it has made concessions to normalize relations with Moscow and Tel Aviv, Salih Muslim, co-chairman of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), told Sputnik.

"[Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the ruling Justice and Development Party] made peace with Russia and Israel. Now it’s turn to make peace with Assad," Muslim said in an interview.

He added that mended relations between Turkey and Syria would not affect the Kurds, as the ethnic minority does not relying on anyone’s support.

Ankara and Moscow ended seven months of strained relations in late June when Erdogan wrote a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, apologizing for the downing of a Russian Su-24 attack aircraft by a Turkish jet in November 2015 over Syria and extending his condolences to the family of the pilot killed in the incident.

On June 28, Israel and Turkey signed an agreement to normalize relations, that deteriorated six years ago, when 9 Turkish civilians died during a raid by Israeli commandos on the Mavi Marmara flotilla to Gaza Strip.
