Syrian Kurds set terms for partnership with Assad

Official of YPG group battling ISIL says they are willing to coordinate with anyone who is ready for democracy.

    A Syrian Kurdish official has told Al Jazeera that the government of President Bashar al-Assad could be a partner if it commits itself to a democratic future.

    Currently involved in battling the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Syria, Syrian Kurdish fighters, known as the YPG, have long denied links with the Damascus government.

    However, the two sides could have a much more collaborative road ahead.
