MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. The success of the Geneva talks on the Syrian crisis resolution depends on the participation of Syrian Kurds, Senam Mohamed, the co-chairperson of the People's Council of Western Kurdistan, said on Wednesday.
"We have seen the results of the talks on Syrian settlement in Geneva without Kurds," she told an opening ceremony of the Kurdish mission in Moscow. "We hope that Kurdish people will be invited to the next round, otherwise the results will be the same."
Negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition took place on January 29 in Geneva but Kurds received no invitation. Turkey opposes their participation in the talks.
Deputy UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy on Syria Ramzi Izz Eddin Ramzi said after the first round that no new invitations would be sent.
Syrian Kurds are planning to open missions in the United States and some European countries, Senam Mohamed also said.
"We are planning to open missions in the US, Germany, France and Sweden in the near future," she told an opening ceremony of the Moscow office.
According to Mohamed, the mission will establish and strengthen diplomatic, economic and political ties between Russia and Syrian Kurds.
The Russian Foreign Ministry has repeatedly spoken in favor of Kurdish participation in the intra-Syrian talks, which Turkey opposes.
Moscow says Kurdish people, who have political and military power, have the right to participate in the negotiations and decision-making process regarding Syria’s future.
A special representative of Syrian Kurdistan to countries of Europe and America has urged attention of international human rights organizations to a military operation of Turkey against Kurds.
"Turkey continues warfare against its nationals, Kurds, punitive operations against civilians are carried out with extreme cruelty," Senam Mohamed said.
As an example she mentioned the developments in the Kurdish populated city of Jizra in Turkey. "Many civilians have died there, women and children among them," she said, urging reaction to the developments on the border.
