“These issues include: the Kurdish council’s request to change the education plan in areas controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), and coordinating with UN agencies and UNICEF to verify certificates and previous educational stages,” the sources said.
Bailey requested that the issue of Kurdish interference and the relationship between the Democratic Union ruling party and the Kurdistan Workers Party in Turkey be addressed in future rounds.
