White House National Security Adviser John Bolton is due in Turkey on Monday for talks on Syria. Bolton has said that he will ask Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan that US Kurdish allies must be protected after American troops pull out from Syria. Ankara, on the other hand, is prepared to launch an offensive against Kurdish militias in Syria. Meir Javedanfar, a Middle East analyst based in Tel Aviv, tells CGTN that striking a deal over the Syrian Kurdish forces will be very difficult.
