The Sochi conference. Kurdish!

Bercav: Erbil-Rana Omar
It seemed to some that the Sochi conference formed the turning point on the Syrian track, but for some it seemed a fatal turn, especially by the Kurds where the final statement was frightening Kurdish as the statement made no reference to the Kurds or their rights, which gave rise to serious fears on their street, contrary to what they had hoped to remind their rights as they came In the draft of the Russian Federation prepared for Syria, it was noted that there was a significant difference between the final statement and the draft final communiqué issued prior to Sochi.
We will not be surprised by the fact that the latter does not refer to the Kurdish presence and does not address their rights, and it is clear that the statement does not draft Syrian constitution tabled by the Russians months ago there was room for the cable and also the question of self-administrations
How does the Kurdish elite evaluate the statement, is there a Kurdish failure? This question was posed to officials and those working in the general Kurdish political field, including Akram Hesso, who is a member of the political body of the Democratic Council of Syria (Mesd) to "Bercav
It is understood that the most important output of Geneva 3 is the decision to cease fire in Syria and to break the siege of areas besieged by the regime as a result of understandings between the international community the regional parties, which called for the convening of a conference to install this decision at the Syrian level, added, "The most important is that Agreed by the international community to consider the results of the extension of the Geneva tours, but unfortunately after the completion of the fourth zone and the last, under the 7th of Astana, the Russians tried to exploit military achievements on their behalf to anticipate events and impose their decisions on the international community and return. Strongly as a primary player for Geneva or any conference on the Syrian issue. "
And consider that the leaked draft and the final communiqué of Sochi there is no difference between them except by intentional interpretation and that is why they can be considered as two papers for one logic that does not accept others
The draft prepared for the Sochi conference, which had been leaked prior to the conference, did not differ in substance from the final statement announced after the end the work of the Conference on all its items, albeit different in form and with some of its most influential words in order. That is why we can say that all participants in the Conference were aware, convinced and tacitly agreeing with everything contained in the leaked draft (as he felt in response to a dry question).
He is one of the policy actors in northern Syria and Syria, "on the other hand, we find the obvious change and total contradiction in Russian opinion among draft constitution submitted by them more than a year ago and the final communiqué of Sochi," and he continued to feel "a Sochi statement confirming Syria's Arabism through the item The first of which is compatible with the first article of the Constitution of Syria 2012 "
The text of that constitution, which was rejected by the Syrian opposition and the Kurds, was listed:
1. Full respect for and observance of the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and its territory and people
This is contrary to the first article of the draft Constitution submitted by the Russians themselves, which has omitted the status of Arabism from Syria (the Syrian Republic is an independent state).
2. The Sochi papers symbolize the consideration of Syria as part of the Arab world in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and its objectives and principles, namely, to attribute the status of Arabism to Syria, land and people.
This is contrary to what is stated in the draft Russian constitution that the people of Syria.... Affirming its adherence to the Charter of the United Nations and the Charter of the Arab League.... Any consideration of Syria belongs to all its people including Kurds
He noted that the draft Russian constitution provided for the principle of decentralization and equality between the Kurdish and Arabic languages "using Kurdish cultural self-government bodies and its organizations are the Arabic and Kurdish languages as equal languages» The law sets out the status of Kurdish cultural self-government and it is responsible for the association Areas» Next to the people's assembly» The legislative power of the country which is established to enable the participation of representatives of administrative units in the legislative work and administration of the country
And that's what I missed. It did not address the Sochi and the so-called demolition and circumvention of the rights of the Kurdish people, of course, there are many items and points that raise suspicions and fears with the intention of the Russian side.
He felt that what happened was a wrap-up by Russia on the subject, saying "The Russians ' circumvention of the international community by exploiting military achievements for their own sake confirms their failure to find a Syrian solution that satisfies all Syrians, including the Kurdish people.
"We cannot say that there is a Kurdish failure because Sochi does not give up the international will to find a political solution as a conference between the regime and the regime," he said in his interview with #Bercav
"We cannot say that there is a Kurdish failure because Sochi does not give up the international will to find a political solution as a conference between order and order," he said.
Saleh Bouzan, a member of the leading body of the Kurdish Democratic Unity party in Syria (yakiti) and the Kurdistan Regional Party organization (PKK) official, said: " The Sochi conference as any of the marathon conferences that took place on the Syrian crisis and which ended in its entirety without reaching any solution, "since the beginning of the crisis, there has been no real Kurdish representation that represents the aspirations of the Kurdish people at those conferences," he said.
According to Bouzan, the Sochi conference was held at the time of the Turkish army, trying to occupy part of Syrian territory and bombing the town of Afrin and its villages by flying, artillery and dozens of martyrs and hundreds of wounded women, elders and children were killed amidst international and regional silence, and Turkey is one of the three guarantor countries to cut Escalation in Syria so there is no Kurdish representation at the Sochi conference it is natural that the results of the Conference will be without mentioning the simplest right of the people of Kurds.
As the opinion of Osman Mannan (a political and public activist) was more short of the scene, he said, "Unfortunately, no forum has yet been elevated international obligations within the context of the rights of peoples to be among the aspirations of the Kurdish people," said Mannan, "the Sochi conference failed before its launch, especially in the shadow of the guy August international actors such as the Americans on the one hand and the Kurdish National Council in particular which is continuously present at the Geneva conference and since they were launched by the Russians the other for Syria is trying to prolong the life of the system and does not want to put appropriate solutions to the core issues in the Syrian issue like the departure of the regime and the rights The Kurdish people and other components within Syria are democratic, pluralistic, federal parliamentary. "
"Whatever the case, it will not be acceptable to Russia, especially in the light of Russia's involvement in the bloodshed in Syria," he believed.
. The failure of the Kurds to participate in the conference is not a failure, but on the contrary it is a good reading of the political reality: the absence of opposition the Americans about the conference have a failed precedent and the other thing behind the Kurds ' absence is shelling of Afrin, which has lost confidence in the Russians.
The Kurdish scene remained hazy after the issuance of the Sochi statement, in the presence of the Special Envoy and the latter considering that the Sochi statement could be adopted in the negotiations the discussions in the coming Geneva rounds, and the question, you see, can it be said that the Kurds have been completely bypassed or that there are other opportunities?!
