MOSCOW, March 21. /TASS/. The attempts to isolate Kurds from the inter-Syrian peace talks in Geneva will worsen the situation in the Middle East, a Russian expert told TASS on Monday.

"The attempts to exclude, isolate Kurds from the negotiating process are complicating the situation in Syria, Turkey and the entire Middle East," said Vyacheslav Trubnikov, vice-president of the Russian Council for International Affairs and member of the Directorate of the Institute of the World Economy and International Relations at the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The attempts, which Syrian Kurds are taking for federalization, "are not stipulated in any way either by the Constitution or the government in Damascus," the expert said.

"No doubt, this may lead to a split in the ranks of those forces, which are today standing against the Islamic State [terrorist organization banned in Russia]," he added.

"This only plays into the hands of terrorists," the expert said.

"In this situation, it is important to use joint efforts to achieve Kurds’ participation in the negotiation process or look for other ways of settling the Kurdish problem. Kurds’ federalization or the creation of even autonomous Kurdistan in one way or another will affect all the states," Trubnikov said.

"Mideast parceling is a powder keg that will necessarily explode and involve all Syria’s neighbors," the expert said.
