30
The leadership of the Kurdish self-government in the north of Syria is open to dialogue through the mediation of Russia, said the chairman of the committee on international relations of the canton of the Jazeera Federation of Northern Syria (Rogava) Abdulkarim Umar.


Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said at the end of September that the Syrian authorities were ready to discuss with the Kurds of the SAR the issue of self-government after the fight against the Islamic State terrorist group (IG *, banned in the Russian Federation) was completed.

Syrian Kurds agree to negotiate with Damascus


We rate these statements as positive and overdue. This is a step that can become a base. We are open to dialogue with the authorities to address the crisis in the country. Earlier there were initiatives. We held several meetings with the authorities through the mediation of the Russian Federation. The authorities then were not ready to discuss the future of Syria ... We are ready to continue and complete negotiations with international guarantees and mediation of Russia
- declared Umar.

Umar added that "historical"The Kurdish problem in Syria should be addressed as part of a full-fledged solution to the Syrian crisis.

The Kurdish problem can be solved through building a new Syria with all its other components.
- declared Umar.

The Federation of Northern Syria (Rozhava) was proclaimed by a number of Kurdish organizations in March 2016 of the year on the territory beyond the control of Damascus in the north of Syria, near the border with Turkey. It consists of three cantons - Afrin, Jazeera and Kobani. Damascus did not recognize its creation. In Syrian Kurdistan, there are about 4,6 million people, of whom 2,5 million Kurds, reports RIA News

        And they have the choice of either being in Syria or being in Turkey. Syrians can at least agree on something

          In Syria, to be legal autonomy, and in Turkey to be behind barbed wire, if not worse .... That's the whole choice!

            In Syria, be legal autonomy

            Kurds no longer need autonomy. They need the independence and oil fields of Der Ez-Zor. And this Assad will not be able to arrange. Russia is on the side, because it’s easy to dispose of foreign territory.

              While they will talk about autonomy, and then set the Crimean and maybe Catalan referendums as an example, they will try to create their own independent Kurdish state with quiet glanders.

        Russia was far-sighted when it did not confront the Kurds. Now, thanks to this, the opportunity has emerged for negotiations between the Kurds and Assad, with our mediation.

          Kurds need to be confronted only if they decide to armed opposition to our forces in Syria. Let them do what they want with Turkey and Iraq - we should not go there. And Syria is our "clearing", here it is necessary to agree. But it is desirable to first finish off ISIS, in this case, the Kurds are one of the main forces in the region.

          Russia in this case is not far-sighted, just did not want to fight the Kurds. That's all. In general, Russia easily went to the partition of Syria with partners. Itself offered! You don’t feel sorry for your territory. All these peace initiatives, offers to partners to fight jointly against Isil, invitation of Erdogan’s friend to Syria ...

      goodBut this is already interesting. They don’t want to talk to Turkey (a member of the aggressive NATO bloc), to Iraq (because of whose back HEGEMON Himself peeks out) too ... But they are ready for dialogue with the SAR. Pride in the country at such moments takes honestly, although not a urapatriot ... Just a Patriot.

      So Wang’s prediction comes true, Syria will fall. In its previous form, Syria will no longer be built. something like the Syrian independent commonwealth of the republics.

    They will start to agree, it’s already good. The main thing is that the “striped” advisers should not be around. If Assad really goes to negotiations, this is a big plus.

        Assad has always been against Kurdish autonomy, and if now he agrees to negotiations, then this is a big progress. It seems like 100% e participation of Russia.

    The whole question is whether the Americans will give them an agreement. America definitely doesn’t need it, they need a constant war there and they have just relied on the Kurds and will try to use them. Surely they will find such Kurdish leaders who are ordered to fight, and not to negotiate.
    The news is certainly good, but this is more of a test for the Kurds themselves, as far as they are a whole nation and are able to make sound decisions and get out of unprofitable influence.

      there are no options. The USA will not allow the Kurds anything, so they need an aggravation and development of the conflict
      so that after the defeat of Daesh and taking control of the remaining territory of Syria, the SAR will take over the Kurds. The Kurds are either part of Syria or war (!)

    Kurds there are different varieties. And we must also understand which of them agree to negotiations. However, this news is good for anyone.

    And where will they go, the “Caliber” is life-giving, in a compartment with traditionally good relations with the Kurds they will do the thing. True, during the time of Gorbachev and Yeltsin, there was a betrayal by our leadership of this people. But this was not only with them. I think in Iraqi Kurdistan, not they will stick sticks in our wheels, as if the Americans would not want this, creating anti-Russian blocs ..

    Syrian Kurds were always more negotiable than Iraqi and did not categorically demand independence but insisted on "broad" autonomy.
    I think the Kurds and Arabs in Syria will agree.
    Meanwhile, Muall, at a meeting with Lavrov, feeling Iran and other sane countries supporting Syria behind his "back", Russia declares.
    Damascus will require the dissolution of the US-led coalition

    Russia now has a real chance to leave the Kurds within Syria on autonomy rights. To become the guarantor of the deal and help resolve the problems with the Turks. The truth is that they will have to squeeze the Americans, and as the Yankees do not like to lose, they have already seen perfectly well. Americans will not forgive such a step.

    Now the main thing that needs to be achieved from the Kurds is the cessation of the fulfillment of US commands by them, if they really see themselves in Syria in the future, the cessation of oppression of the Arab population by them. They should really fight ISIS, and not hang out with them on one side of the barricades ...
