The Kurdish street is busy at the present time of creating an appropriate political ground for discussing the Kurdish unity after the initiative put forward by the Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Mazloum Abdi, in which he called for the necessity of Kurdish unity.
Several parties responded to the Kurdish unity initiative, and supported it to develop discussions among all the Kurdish parties and forces in the region.
In this context, the Secretary of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Accord Party Fawzi Shengali said in an interview with our agency that “the issue of the Kurdish unity in force in Rojava and Syria is important, and it is a historic need and necessity according to the current circumstances and conditions in the whole world in the 21st century which is likely to be the century of democracy in the world, where there are political developments in the world; a new sketch of the Middle East map, and therefore the unity issue is absolutely necessary.”
Shengali pointed out that the situation of the Kurdish people in the four parts of Kurdistan is clear, and he said: “So we have to consider our place and our role in creating a suitable ground for the role that the Kurdish people will play in the changes that the world comes close to in the 21st century, and this dictates us to reach a Kurdish agreement that carries out its responsibility preserving the Kurds’ rights to make them a place in the new map.”
Fawzi Shengali believes that the discussions of the Kurdish unity in Rojava in particular and Kurdistan in general should be developed and monitored, pointing out that the topic of the Kurdish unity at this time is "a new reading of the Kurdish movement in the region.”
Shengali expressed their pride in the initiative put forward by the Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces Mazloum Abdi for the sake of the Kurdish unity, and saw that many political movements in Rojava supported this initiative. The initiative received international attention and sponsorship from America and France, considering that this is a positive and good step.”
The two Kurdish parties must resolve their differences soon
The Secretary of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Accord Party Fawzi Shengali called on the Democratic Union Party and the Kurdish National Council to resolve the differences and problems between them according to what is being discussed.
Shengali commented on information indicating the National Assembly’s refusal to discuss with all Kurdish parties and only discuss with the Democratic Union Party, and said: “The National Assembly’s request was to reach a solution with the Democratic Union Party only on the background of opening their offices and other matters, but in the recent days, it has been clear that a discussion is taking place around a political document and vision for Syria and what would be the status of the Kurdish issue in Syria.”
He added, “The discussion about a document or a political vision is not in this way with only one party because if the political vision was discussed in terms of the Kurdish national situation in Syria, it should not have been between only two parties. There are parties and institutions of civil society, women and youth. Everybody must joins these discussions, and if they were not in this, then, it would be an agreement between only two parties (between the Democratic Union and the National Council), and in this way it would be incomplete and subject to threats.”
Shengali explained that to protect unity, communication must be made with all Kurdish groups to reach a clear and sincere political vision that embraces all categories, and that this will support the democratization of Syria in general.
Shengali hoped that the Kurdish National Council would move closer to achieving the Kurdish unity with greater responsibility, as the Democratic Union Party announced in a statement in the recent days about the need for other parties to participate in the Kurdish unity.
At the end of his speech, the Secretary of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Accord Party Fawzi Shengali affirmed that there can be no unity or agreement without the participation of all the Kurdish parties and restricting them between only two sides or parties, and that all segments of Kurdish society must participate in the Kurdish-Kurdish agreement.
