The US will not recognise Kurdish federal territory in Syria, said State Department spokesperson Mark Toner during a press briefing in Washington DC, Wednesday.
"We have been very clear about our belief in the territorial integrity and unity of Syria, and we believe that the creation of these kind of semi-autonomous zones now would frankly be a threat to that," Toner added. "But ultimately, how that looks is going to be a process that ia going to have to be decided by the Syrian people as we move forward," the spokesperson concluded.
Toner's remarks came after Idris Nassan, an official in the foreign affairs directorate of Kobani, put forward federalisation as one option to resolve the Syria conflict.
