PYD to open representative office in Washington
Syria's Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) will open its representative office in the US capital of Washington, Ilham Ahmed, the co-chair of the Syrian Democratic Council, which includes the PYD, told Sputnik Tuesday.

She also stressed that the Syrian Democratic Council in general and the PYD in particular are seeking constructive relations with the US administration.

"We cannot announce the exact date of the opening yet. This is related to how soon all the relevant negotiations and the necessary procedures will be finalized," Ahmed said.

Washington has been supporting the PYD forces to counter the Islamic State (IS) in Syria which led to the deterioration of the US-Turkey relations as Turkey considers the PYD to be affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is designated as a terrorist group in Turkey and the United States.
