    The announcement concerning a possible Kurdish autonomy in Syria will not impact operations against Daesh, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) spokesperson Steve Warren said during a press briefing on Wednesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A representative of the Syrian Kurdistan administration told Sputnik that representatives from various Syrian peoples, including the Kurds, will discuss the possibility of Syria’s federalization at the Geneva reconciliation talks later on Wednesday.

    "This is a political matter not something that OIR really has a hand in," Warren stated. "It will not affect one way or another our operations against ISIL [Daesh]."
