PYD Co-leader Salim Muslim: Syrian Kurds not Seeking Independence from Syria, “Turkey has Kurdish phobia”. (Basnews).
ROJAVA — The Co-leader of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), Saleh Muslim, has once again stated that they do not seek independence from Syria.
Saleh Muslim told a German news agency that they have no intention to control A'azaz area which has deeply concerned Turkey.
"Turkey has Kurdish Phobia and deems any rights for Kurds as a threat to Turkey" Muslim said.
PYD co-leader, who is ruling the three cantons in Syrian Kurdistan, asserted that they do not intend to declare independence from Syria, except seeking their constitutional rights within Syria.
He insists that the armed 'terrorist' groups that came recently to Aleppo from Turkey are believed to have joined the Islamic State (IS) and al-Nusra Front in Syria.
Syrian democratic forces, created and backed by the US to liberate Al-Raqqa, the defacto capital of the Islamic State (IS), are in control of a proportion of 20% of the Syrian territory.
