Russia calls for dialogue between Syrian government, Kurds

MOSCOW: Russia has called for dialogue between the Syrian government and Kurdish forces controlling the country’s northern region amid Washington’s greenlight for Ankara’s upcoming military operation against its Kurdish allies.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, urged for “dialogue between the central government in Damascus and representatives of the Kurdish communities that traditionally reside” in Syria.

Lavrov said that Russia had contacted representatives of both Kurdish militants and the Syrian government in a bid to encourage talks between the two sides, emphasizing the significance of talks as “the only way toward stability.”

Washington announced earlier this week that the US had begun withdrawing troops from Syria’s Kurdish-controlled border region with Turkey, allowing Ankara to proceed with a planned operation against the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria.
