Bouthaina Shaaban, a senior advisor to Syrian President Bashar Assad, 
acknowledged the regime’s support of Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD).

Shaaban has described PYD as an “allied force” for the regime and voiced 
the government’s satisfaction with cooperation with both Russia and PYD.

“The YPG Kurdish units, the armed group of PYD, are cooperating with the 
Syrian army and Russian air forces to clear northern Syria of terrorism.”
