President Trump is receiving praise for his role in negotiating a Syrian ceasefire, which is undercutting reports alleging Kurdish forces are unhappy with the U.S. The military leader of the Syrian Kurds issued a statement through a spokesperson expressing his gratitude.
General Mazloum Abdi credited President Trump’s efforts for stopping the Turkish offensive. He went on to say the U.S. has promised to maintain a partnership with Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
This comes after President Trump confirmed he spoke with the Kurdish commander Wednesday.
