A representative of the Syrian Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Russia told Sputnik on Wednesday that Syrian Kurds do not expect changes in Damascus internal policy under a newly-appointed prime minister.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Syrian President Bashar Assad tasked the country’s Electricity Minister Imad Mohammad Deeb Khamis to form a new government.

"This is like a chessboard: one has been removed, the second has been appointed. They are appointed just like civil servants. But they represent the one group, that's why new policy will not change very much [from the old one]," Abd Salam Ali said.

He added that Damascus would not recognize Kurdish bid for democratization and federalization regardless of the name of the country's prime minister.

Meanwhile, co-chair of PYD Saleh Muslim told Sputnik that the appointment will not bring any changes to the political situation in the country.

"The new PM could not change anything," he said.
