MOSCOW, July 31 (Itar-Tass) - Syrian Kurds seek to take part in the Geneva-2 conference as a separate delegation, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
Russia “realizes Syrian Kurds’ intention. We believe that it does not prove any separatist position. On the contrary, it shows that Syrian Kurds seek to live in one sovereign country where there is no place to the split on the ethnic base and where legal rights to all communities are guaranteed”, the report says.
“We believe that in Geneva Syrian Kurds should be given a form, which would allow them to speak about their aspirations and protect them within the Syrian political process,” the report says.
In May 2013 Syria’s Kurdish Supreme Council asked for contribution to allowing it to take part in the Geneva-2 conference. The request was confirmed as part of the Syrian delegation’s visit to Moscow and its talks at the Russian Foreign Ministry on June 4.
“As for journalists’ question about ‘the independence of Syrian Kurdistan’, this issue was not raised during the talks at the Russian Foreign Ministry. Our position is clear: we are committed to the norms and principles of international law based on the U.N. Charter, as well as to the respect of states’ sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the report say.
