On Tuesday, reports appeared citing the plans of the Kurds to declare a ‘federation’ in Northern Syria which would remain a part of the country.
According to the Agence France-Presse news agency, three Kurdish-controlled regions voted to approve the establishment of a federal system, despite warnings from Syrian and Turkish authorities against such a move.
“The majority of Kurds are in favor of unity in Syria, rejecting the split and seeing the need for dialogue to resolve the crisis,” Heidu said.
He further said that he had not heard any of the Kurdish politicians since the formation of the first Kurdish party in Syria in 1957, calling for separation. According to him, the idea does not have mass support.
Earlier in an interview with RIA Novosti Bashar Assad said that, in his opinion, most Kurds want to live in a unified Syria with a centralized power.
Earlier, Syria's Foreign Minister Walid Muallem rejected proposals for the federalization and partition of the country, supported at the Geneva intra-Syrian talks by several opposition factions.
