The Foreign Ministry criticized the position of Turkey on the prevention of the Syrian Kurds to the negotiation process in Geneva

12
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation criticized the position of official Ankara, based on the fact that the delegation of the so-called moderate opposition of Syria in Geneva cannot include representatives of Kurdish movements. According to the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Gennady Gatilov, not only Russia, but also the UN representatives consider it necessary to provide an opportunity for representatives of the Kurdish communities to join the delegation.


The Foreign Ministry criticized the position of Turkey on the prevention of the Syrian Kurds to the negotiation process in Geneva


RIA News cites the statement of Gennady Gatilov:
The Kurds are a very significant part of the Syrian opposition. They control a significant part of the Syrian territory and have a serious political influence, so all issues related to the Syrian settlement should be resolved taking into account the interests and the Kurdish segment. Therefore, we are in favor of the Kurds taking part in the Syrian negotiations from the very beginning. Americans generally share this opinion. Unfortunately, the factor of Turkey is interfering here, which insists that the Kurds should be excluded from negotiations and a political settlement.

Russia's position on the inclusion of representatives of the Kurdish communities of Syria in the negotiation process was supported by UN special envoy to resolve the Syrian crisis, Staffan de Mistura. Official Ankara continues to make efforts not to include the Kurds in the negotiation process.

Recall that the next stage of negotiations and consultations on Syria started in Geneva on January 29.

    Well, after all, from the Turkish point of view, such a people as the Kurds does not exist, and if they appear anywhere, they are "thinned out" by "0", ostensibly as terrorists.

      It is generally not clear why everyone in Geneva was fixated on a peaceful settlement in Syria. The reason is understandable - the successful actions of the army of the SAR and the Russian Aerospace Forces, it is not clear why the UN special envoy and the Russian delegation are silent about the need to resolve military conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Turkey itself. I am sure that if Russia invited the opposition of these countries, then there would be an order of magnitude less problems in Syria.

    Kurds are a party that should be able to speak out, because they represent a very significant part of the country's population, it is a divided people, subjected to periodic persecution. Kurds represent a real force opposing the Islamic State and should be reckoned with.
    This is not some kind of "moderate opposition" proclaimed by other states that have their own plans in Syria,
    represented by an office in other countries with several employees and
    it is unclear whether there is any support at all among the Syrian people
    or it’s mercenaries, even if they are citizens of Syria, but representing the interests of other countries - Turkey, the USA, SA, etc., carrying out subversive activities for a fee.

      And not only. It's time to raise the issue of Kurdish genocide. Along with the Armenian Genocide, the Kurdish genocide has become a common practice for Turkey. Criminals, like criminal regimes, never stop themselves, persuasion, pressure, threats for them are just an additional factor of impunity, provoking even bigger crimes.

    Since the Turks are against, then the Syrians and Kurds need to agree among themselves and hammer down the Perdogan jackals together. And Russia could act as a mediator between the Syrian Kurds and Assad.

    I’m not strong in politics, I admit honestly. But the opinion is that the US first of all needs a hotbed of tension in the face of the Kurds for Turkey. Our country should play more politically hard in this region, we should not only provide military support, but also promote stabilization this region, there’s already a lot of blood already.

    You can be indignant at how much you fit in, but you need to understand until this issue is pushed to the UN and no one moves a finger. Although even at the UN it can be considered a couple of years.

    '' The Russian Foreign Ministry criticized position Turkey'' - I'm not against typos, but it's better to fix it.

    If you exclude Turkey from the negotiation processes, then, by and large, nothing will change. So does it make sense to "break off" the Kurds?

    Aren't there many conditions set by secondary participants in the process? "Moderate opposition" is generally a phantom created by the hands of amers, it is completely incomprehensible what goals it pursues, the Turks who only provoke and finance instability in Syria. Whereas the Kurds living in this territory do not have either statehood or autonomy, no rights at all. But they are there, they are the people. So they have the right to representation in international instances.

    Some criticize, others support, some put forward "additional" conditions, some prevent ... Etc. What's next? There will be no "new" constitutions, no "general" elections. The situation will be the same as in Ukraine: we don't want to, we can't, we need to change the sequence of implementation of the Minsk agreements, etc. etc. ...
