The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Daily HURRIYET held an interview with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Gordon and quoted him saying, "As long as there is Al-Assad's regime in Syria, there will not be any stability," and he pointed that the U.S. is not approving the self-governing Kurdish territory in Syria. According to HURRIYET daily, Gordon said that the U.S. would like to see a united Syria.
