    Rodi Osman, the Syrian Kurdistan envoy to Russia said that Syrian Kurds are ready to contribute to the final solution of the Syrian crisis.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik), Anastasia Levchenko — Syrian Kurds support a peaceful solution to the Syrian crisis but all groups under the aegis of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) umbrella organization must adhere to the US-Russia brokered ceasefire, the Syrian Kurdistan envoy to Russia told Sputnik on Saturday.

    Reports emerged earlier in the day that at least one civilian was killed in a sniper attack at the Sheikh Maqsoud district in the Kurdish-dominated northern city of Aleppo.

    "In all our statements, we clearly voiced our position and declared that we support a peaceful solution to the Syrian crisis, but the question is whether the groups operating under the FSA aegis are ready for a truce," Rodi Osman said.

    "All these groups pose as the Free Syrian Army and they have not ceased hostilities yet. That’s why the countries that propose a ceasefire must think this over and take corresponding measures," he added.

    Syrian Kurds are ready to contribute to the final solution of the Syrian crisis, according to Rodi Osman.

    "Since we always stand against violence and abuse, we have a positive view on the proposal for a ceasefire and endorse [it]. We protect ourselves from terrorism and from assaults on our rights in the Western [Syrian] Kurdistan and all over Syria, and we are ready to contribute to the final solution of the Syrian crisis," Osman said.
