The PYD’s offensive attitude in Syria is forcing Kurds to leave the region, head of the Kurdish National Council in Syria told Turkey’s TRT World channel on Sunday.
Ibrahim Biro, who heads the Kurdish National Council in Syria and is the secretary-general of the Union Kurdish Party in Syria, said: “PYD is a totalitarian and Stalinist party. It does not share power with other Kurdish parties.
“It determines its behaviors towards other Kurdish groups in the region, about their loyalty to the Syrian regime. If they are loyal to the Syrian regime, it means that they are also loyal to PYD.”
He emphasized that PYD was not bringing peace to the region. "I do not think the PYD is targeting to establish an independent state," he said.
He said all Kurdish groups were demanding a federal structure in Syria and predicted that the U.S. would change its position on PYD after the fight against ISIL ends.
“After the liberation of Mosul and Raqqa, there will be no need to fight ISIL, and then the U.S. would have a different attitude towards PYD,” he said.
Although the PKK is listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the U.S. and EU, only Turkey considers the PYD a terrorist organization and has fought to prevent it from linking territories in western and eastern Syria that would give the PKK/PYD control of most of Turkey’s southern border.
