Turkish representatives' promises to disrupt the Syria peace talks if a Kurdish delegation appears in the Swiss capital is inadmissible, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Office and other International Organization in Geneva Alexey Borodavkin told TASS on Saturday.
"We demand the Kurds be represented at the talks," Borodavkin said. "We go on saying to both UN officials and U.S. colleagues that Turkey is blackmailing when puts forward the conditions that if Syrian Kurds appear at the talks, the Turkish representatives will disrupt them.

"According to our observations, the understanding that Syrian Kurds should be present at the talks and take part in the political process is an absolutely essential point," Borodavkin said. Read the full story here.
