Syrian Kurds Don’t Want Partition of Syria, Do Not Seek Kurdistan’s Autonomy

What the Syrian Kurds are actually calling for is the federalization of the whole state, says Shahoz Hasan, recently elected as co-chair of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD).
“We are open for a dialogue with the central government. We do not want the partition of Syria, do not harbor plans of separating from the country and do not want to set up an independent Kurdistan. Such rumors are not true,” Hasan told Sputnik.
The politician described the recent remarks of the Syrian government that it is open to negotiations with Kurds over their demands for autonomy within Syrian borders as “late in coming.”
Earlier in September, the country’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said the government could discuss the Kurdish demand once the self-styled Islamic State is defeated.
The PYD co-chair explained that the Syrian Kurds and the party are calling for a federalization of Syria. Their federal project is based on the principle of a “democratic autonomy,” which would embrace the whole country.
“We are open for a dialogue and are eager to take part in negotiations on the political settlement of the Syrian crisis,” he said.
