Geneva: Kurdish National Council participates in peace talks, PYD not invited

KurdWatch, February 9, 2016—On January 29, 2016, the UN special envoy Staffan de Mistura announced the start of the peace talks in Geneva to end the civil war in Syria. Delegates from the Syrian regime travelled on the same day to Geneva. The High Negotiations Committee comprised of opposition groups formed in Riyadh arrived one day later. There are two delegates from the Kurdish National Council on the committee. In contrast, a delegation from the Democratic Union Party (PYD) left Geneva. Due to pressure placed by Turkey and the High Negotiations Committee, the PYD was not invited to participate in the talks.
