The unification of the Kurdish ranks in the north and east of Syria is the general demand of the people in the region. Despite the efforts of some parties, including France, and Kurdistan National party to bring together views and to present initiatives and proposals to unify the Kurdish ranks.
French President Emmanuel Macron sought to bring the views of AA and the Kurdish National Council closer together through a French initiative during his meeting with the delegation of the Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria and Syria Democratic Syria (SDC), on April 19, where French representatives met with officials of the Kurdish National Council
An informed source reported that the members of the presidential body of the Kurdish National Council and the members of the Foreign Relations Committee held a meeting on July 8 in Başûr (south of Kurdistan) to discuss the French initiative. The meeting was attended by Ibrahim Pro, Nuri Primo, Mohamed Ismail, Bashar Ameen, Fesala Youssef and Fuad Aliko.
During the meeting, according to the source, the attendees discussed the French initiative, especially with regard to the opening of the Kurdish National Council offices in the north and east of Syria.
The source pointed out that the participants insisted on the need not to open their offices within Al-Jazeera region, although the French urged the Council to open their offices and work in the north and east of Syria.
The French proposal was not new
The issue of the opening of the Kurdish National Council's Offices in north and east of Syria was not a new proposal. This proposal was included in the initiative of the Kurdistan National Conference, which was launched earlier this year with the aim of uniting the Kurdish ranks. The administration agreed to the proposal of the conference and issued a statement in this regard on January 5, stating that all parties, including the unlicensed parties, can open offices in the region, asserting that they are managing with a solution to the contradictions between the Kurdish parties in north and east of Syria.
Why ENKS parties refuse to open their offices?
During the meeting, these reasons emerged as the participants stressed that the KNKS had no active role in the region and that their popular presence had shrunk considerably in Al-Jazeera region.
The other reason for the meeting was that the opening of the parties' headquarters meant recognition of AA, and that recognition would negatively affect their relations with the Turkish state. In addition, they said that if they opened their headquarters in north and east of Syria they would have no excuse to distort the reality of AA, and will not have any paper through which they can distort the reality of AA in international forums.
So what did they agree during the meeting?
The source confirmed that the members of the presidential body of the Kurdish National Council and the members of the Foreign Relations Committee of the ENKS agreed during the meeting on the need to distort the reality of the Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria and to defame them through statements and indicate that the administration is a party to the Democratic Union Party PYD, and that they must work diligently that Representatives of AA do not attend international meetings and conferences, citing the fact that "the presence of representatives of AA in any international forum will negatively affect the Kurdish National Council."
