Popular calls are being made in the Kurdish street for the necessity of achieving national unity among Kurdish political parties, while some efforts are continuing to achieve a consensus between the Kurdish national unity parties and the Kurdish National Council.
On the 16th of June 2020, the Kurdish national unity parties and the Kurdish National Council reached a preliminary understanding during the discussions of the unification of the Kurdish row, the third round of which was scheduled to take place at the beginning of this month. It is a clear hindrance to efforts to reach an agreement.
The latest developments at the level of the talks were on September 20, 2020, with the announcement of the "Kurdish political authority", by both the Kurdish National Council and the Kurdish national unity parties.
The Kurdish politicians stress the need for the success of the talks, which may be a glimmer of hope for the beginning of resolving the Kurdish issue, noting here that it is a sensitive stage that requires sacrifice and compromise on both sides to reach consensus.
In this context, member of the Executive Committee of the Democratic Union Party, Ahmed Sheikho, said, "The enemies of the Kurds have always not allowed the Kurdish dream of uniting the Kurdish ranks to be realized, which must be done on correct grounds that include basic points for unifying the Kurdish opinion and position by all Kurdish parties."
Referring to the Turkish occupation state, Ahmed Sheikho said, "When the friend from the enemy who is hostile to the dream of the Kurdish people is not known by the Kurdish parties, the Kurdish opinion and position will not be unified."
Sheikho noted that there are international principles and standards that must be agreed upon to become the ground for agreement by the Kurdish parties to achieve national unity, such as history, culture, Kurdish language and values.
He said that the Syrian coalition follows the same mentality of the Syrian regime, which is the lack of acceptance of the Kurds and the Kurdish language, and he continued by asking: "How will we accept that rapprochement and deal with them?"
Ahmed Sheikho stressed that all Kurdish parties must return to the Kurdish issue and find out what serves the interests of their people, the parties that must deal with them and what the Kurdish people want, and that they have a will without external forces controlling them until the Kurdish talks succeed and be trusted by the Kurdish community.
Sheikho asked, "How can we talk about Kurdish national unity while one of the parties is within the plans that aim to exterminate the Kurdish people?"
In the conclusion of his speech, Sheikho stressed the need for the Kurdish parties to be freed from the restrictions that are surrounded by the enemies of the Kurds, and which are captive to their partisan and personal interests, far from the interests of the Kurdish people.
The Kurdish national unity parties in Syria stressed, during a written statement issued on the 19th of this month, their keenness on the success of the Kurdish unity initiative, and called on the Kurdish National Council to facilitate the success of the initiative.
