Kurds want lands they control in Syria to become federation under Damascus

Kurdish-controlled autonomous areas in northern Syria are expected to declare a federal system, local media and RT’s sources on the ground have said. The conference to declare the federation of three Western Kurdistan enclaves will be in Rmelan.

Barzan Iso, a Kurdish journalist, has confirmed the news to RT. “Now the conference has just started in Rmelan, about 200 representatives of Rojava have joined [the event]. They represent different ethnicities and nationalities. There are Kurds, Arabs, Assyrians, Syriacs, Turkomans, Armenians, Circassians and Chechens,” he told RT on Wednesday. “Also we have representatives from the Syrian democratic forces, YPG, women defense units.”

“This conference is supposed to announce a federation as a political project for Rojava region in northern Syria,” Iso added.

A newly established system would see the autonomous cantons in Syria Kurdistan (Rojava) replaced.

Syrian Kurds effectively control a stretch of 400 kilometers (250 miles) along the Syria-Turkey border, from the frontier with Iraq to the Euphrates River. They also control a section of the northwestern border in the Afrin area.

The areas will reportedly be named the Federation of Northern Syria and represent all ethnic groups living there, Idris Nassan, an official in the foreign affairs directorate of Kobani – one of three autonomous areas set up by Kurdish groups two years ago – told Reuters. The federal system would mean “widening the framework of self-administration which the Kurds and others have formed,” Nassan said.

Kurdistan would, however, still remain within Syria as an autonomous region, a Kurdish representative told RIA Novosti.

“Within days, probably today, self-governing [bodies] of three Kurdish cantons in Syria’s north will declare a federation,” Abd Salam Ali, representative of the PYD party in Moscow, told RIA Novosti on Wednesday. “Separation of Rojava [Western Kurdistan] from Syria is not an option. We remain [a part of Syria], but declare a federation,” he said.

Syrian Kurds expect their experience to be applicable to other ethnicities and religious communities in Syria, according to Ali. “Our experience would be useful for Alawites and Sunnis. Perhaps, this is the key to [bringing] peace in our country.”

“We have the so-called Project of Democratic Syria. We also had this project before. We also have the Commission preparing everything for this project.” Senam Mohamed, the European representative of the Rojava administration, told Sputnik on Wednesday.

In the meantime, Turkey said that any unilateral move aimed at declaring a federation cannot be valid adding that it supports Syria’s national unity and territorial integrity. The administrative structure of Syria will be decided by all Syrians through the adopting of a new constitution, a source in the Turkish foreign ministry told Reuters.

“The areas will reportedly be named the Federation of Northern Syria and represent all ethnic groups living there”

this is the kicker though:

“Turkey said that any unilateral move aimed at declaring a federation cannot be valid adding that it supports Syria’s national unity and territorial integrity.”
