US mulls to create autonomous region in northern Syria: analyst

<p style="text-align:left">Joshua Landis belives the White House is seeking an autonomous region in the north of Syria which will be under the control of the Kurdish force in the region.

The President of the Middle East Studies Center in Oklahama University, Landis says the U.S. wants to create the region and use it as a tool against the central government in Samascus.
Refering to the presence of the U.S. forces in Syria since 2014, he told al-Jazeera TV that U.S. President Donald Trump is willing to fulfill his election campaign promise and pull out the US troops from the war- torn country but other foundations, among them the congress, defense ministry, and the foreign ministry want to convince Trump ythat it is within Washington's interest to preserve its forces in the country.
Dr. Landis added the possible autonomous region will face challenges, including disputes and differences between the Kurds and Arabs.
Despite Turkey, the U.S. does not consider th Kurdish forces in Syria as affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and, therefore, does not consider them as terrorists.
