Tehran, YJC. Syrian lawmaker has urged Kurd opposition to leave allies and join for the Geneva II talks.

Amr Ousi, lawmaker and Chairman of the National Association of Syrian Kurds in interview with Fars called the Kurd groups which have joined the opposition to leave their allegiance and join a single, independent coalition to attend the Geneva II talks.

Ousi also urged Kurd groups to join the Syrian national talks in order to reach a framework of understanding with the Syrian ruling power which has opened talks with the Kurd.

He maintained that there is the opportunity to hold negotiations with the Syrian ruling power prior to the Geneva II conference, which will be held January 22.

He further said that the High Commission of the Kurds which was formed under Massoud Barzani with representatives from the Syrian Kurd, Syrian Kurd opposition, figures from Turkey, such as Leyla Zana, Kurd representatives to the Turkey parliament, as well as Osman Baydemir has reached good points to solve the Syrian crisis.

He asserted that the High Commission of the Kurds does not represent the entire Kurd society, since not all Syrian Kurds are members to parties.

He exclaimed that the Kurdish Movement Of Syria has made two strategic mistakes, first being to refrain from joining the Syrian national talks and second joining the Syrian opposition coalition.

Ousi further added that the Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Harqi had personally asked him one year and a half ago to mediate with Kurds but his offices in doing so have come to no avail.

Pointing to Ahmad Jarba leading the Syrian opposition to the Erbil meeting, the lawmaker stated that the opposition leader had been unsuccessful in joining the Syrian government-friendly Kurd parties to the opposition coalition.
