Top Kurdish politician Aldar Xelil said he welcomed a halt to fighting in northern Syria with Turkey but the group would defend itself if subjected to an assault, speaking to Saudi news channel Al Arabiya after a ceasefire announced by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.

Xelil said Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan wants to push in 32 km (20 miles) deep into Syria, which the group has previously rejected.
