    Kurds should participate in the Syrian peace talks if they agree with Geneva and UN Security Council decisions on the crisis settlement, Syria’s Tomorrow's spokesman, a new moderate opposition faction, said.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) — Akbik stressed that Kurds first needed to renounce claims that they were cooperating with the Syrian government or wanted to create an autonomous region within the Syrian territory.

    "The process of federalization or creating an autonomous region should not be unilateral. It should be decided on a national level… No one should force their unilateral decisions on others: neither Kurds on the rest of Syrians nor anyone else on Kurds," Monzer Akbik, a former spokesman of the Syrian National Coalition, told RIA Novosti.

    "Every part of the Syrian society that agrees with decisions made in Geneva and UNSC – on the Syrian territorial integrity, transitional process – must participate [in the talks]."

    Syria’s Tomorrow emerged in March in a new bid to unite liberal opposition forces under one umbrella organization. It is headed by Ahmad Jarba, the former chief of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, better known as the Syrian National Coalition (SNC).
