Together toward a democratic Syria

The Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) was established in 2015 as a leading coalition in Syria. The SDC is the political leadership of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which liberated most of North and East Syria from the Islamic State in partnership with the United States and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS. The U.S. Mission of the SDC views the United States as a key ally in supporting democracy in Syria and as a partner for peace and security in the country.
