The US State Department has officially invited the Kurdish National Council in Syria (KNC) to Washington for talks, planned for late February, to discuss their views on a solution for the future of Syria, officials said on Thursday.
This is the first time that Syrian Kurds are being invited to meet with officials of the new administration of Donald Trump, who was inaugurated as president on the 20th of January.
“The invitation shows the important role of the KNC as a representative of Syrian Kurds,” he said.
Abdo added that two officials of the KNC were invited, without specifying which officials will go to the USA.
The State Department has not confirmed the invitation yet.
PYD representative in France Khaled Issa, PYD’s co-Chair Asya Abdullah, and the head of Kobane canton administration Anwar Muslim were invited to Moscow upcoming Friday to meet with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
While the KNC sees the creation of a Kurdistan region of Syria as a solution to the crisis, the PYD asks for a multi-ethnic federation for the north of Syria.
