    Divisions Plague Kurdish Opposition Groups in Syria
    by RUDAW

    By Bradost Azizi

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – For the second time in less than two weeks the Kurdish National Council in Syria (KNC) gathered in Erbil to seek a way out of a political deadlock over uniting Syria’s divided Kurdish groups under a single banner.

    Ibrahim Biro, the leader of the Kurdish Union Party in Syria told Rudaw that the KNC is now trying to bring the different forces under one umbrella.

    “We will later talk to the People’s Council in Syria in order to form a united force and find a name for it,” said Biro.

    The People’s Council in Syria is under the influence and largely controlled by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) that opposes all other opposition groups.

    Ali Muslim, a Kurdish revolutionary leader who commands three armed battalions said that his group has preconditions for joining a united Kurdish force.

    “The posts should be assigned equally in the new force,” he said. “No particular group should have dominance and the fighters should receive orders from a military council only.”

    Other groups show stronger reservations about joining a united Kurdish force.

    Bewar Mustafa, the commander of the Salahaddini Ayubbi battalion who defected from the Syrian army and joined hands with Arab rebels groups in Aleppo, said that their ideological differences with the People’s Defense Units (YPG) makes it unlikely that his forces would ever join any Kurdish army.

    “We will not join any Kurdish project that has the YPG in it,” Mustafa said.

    The YPG, the armed wing of the PYD, is the most dominant force in Syria’s Kurdish areas. In the past several months the YPG has clashed with Arab rebel groups and members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

    In their latest gathering in Erbil, smaller Kurdish parties complained that the bigger groups have formed a bloc, which hampers the work of the national council.

    “Four major parties are members of the council, but in the meantime see themselves and act as an alternative to the council,” said Salih Gido, head of the Democratic Leftist party in Syria.

    But Oso, whose Freedom Party is considered a dominant party, said that his and three other parties have agreed to assimilate their forces and create one united party.

    “After the meeting in Erbil, each party will debate the idea of the merger and we will soon announce the new party,” he said.

    Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani, a major mediator among Syria’s Kurdish parties, met with KNC representatives last week and encouraged them to put differences aside in favor of a united force,” said Mustafa Oso, head of the Kurdish Freedom Party.

    “Barzani told us to form a national Kurdish force in Syria that belongs to no particular political group,” said Oso.

    Barzani also advised us to honor the Erbil Agreement that was signed by all Kurdish parties in Syria in July 2012, Oso added.

    The Erbil Agreement stipulates the formation of a united force in Syria that would restore order and provide security for the country’s Kurdish areas in the absence of Syrian regime forces that have largely withdrawn to other parts of the country.

    Between Baghdad and Ankara
    by Hiwa Osman

    Judging from its agenda, an important oil and gas conference at month’s end in Erbil will focus on the new relationship between Turkey and Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).

    It seems that the aim of the conference is to lay the groundwork for the Kurdistan Region’s emergence as an energy exporter, as it looks to Turkey as both a buyer and entrepot for its oil and gas exports.

    The website of the conference (www.makingconnectionserbil.com), which is for the private sector, says that the event will focus on the relationship between Turkey and the KRG, “in bringing the latter’s natural resources to the world.”

    But turning toward Turkey, and away from Baghdad, may not be in the best interests of the Kurdistan Region.

    The event could have provoked Baghdad, had it not signed an agreement with the KRG last week, agreeing to resolve some of the most pressing issues between the central government and autonomous northern enclave.

    In light of the recent rapprochement with Baghdad and the positive international reactions that followed, the Kurdistan Region should be aware that by maintaining a good relationship with Baghdad it carries more weight externally.

    In the past many of us used to say that if things do not work with Baghdad, the Kurds should turn to Ankara -- or elsewhere. This may have been true in the past, but today the Kurds have a different status in the Middle East and in Iraq.

    While Turkey may be a good business partner for the KRG, it is still far from fit to accept the Kurds as political partners.

    With Baghdad, the Kurds have a constitution that recognizes their existence and rights in every aspect of life; the conflict with Baghdad is over implementation.

    On the other hand, despite ongoing efforts to reach peace with its own Kurds, Turkey still has some way to go before granting equal status to the Kurds.

    While Baghdad speaks of its “Kurdish partner,” Ankara talks about “the Kurdish problem.”

    In fact, for as long as the Kurdish issue is not settled, Turkey will have several Kurdish “problems.” It will face a Kurdish problem internally, a Kurdish problem in Syria and eventually a Kurdish problem in Iraq.

    The Erbil conference at the end of the month may conclude that Turkey and the KRG are viable business partners. But the KRG should be aware that Baghdad is still its political partner. It should also be aware that it cannot continue this status forever.
