DAMASCUS, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad on Thursday warned the U.S.-backed Kurdish militias to stop being agents for the U.S. forces in northeastern Syria.

Speaking during an interview with Syrian national TV, Mekdad said the U.S. forces must leave these areas, adding that the Syrian army will go there eventually.

The minister reiterated that the Syrian army will not abandon any part of Syria's territory, stressing that the U.S. and Turkish occupation forces should withdraw from Syrian lands.

He noted that the Kurdish militias must realize that the future is for Syria and such forces should stop working for foreign powers against their own country. Enditem
