Moscow’s efforts in bringing together Tehran and Ankara to settle the civil war in Syria will bring positive implications by easing tensions between Turkey and Syrian Kurds, Samir Aita, a member of the Syrian Democratic Forum opposition party, told Sputnik on Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, the foreign and defense ministers of Russia, Iran and Turkey met in Moscow to discuss the situation in Syria, agreeing to revive the political process to end the conflict in Syria.

"The fact that Russia brings Iran and Turkey to commit on peace will have positive implications on the Kurdish issue, especially to ease the tensions between Turkey and the YPG [The People's Protection Units], and more generally the Syrian Kurds," Aita said.
