UN: Syrian Kurds should take part in drafting new constitution

Syria’s Kurds should not be ignored, and their representatives must be allowed to take part in drafting the country’s new constitution, U.N. envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura told RIA news agency in an interview published on Tuesday.

The United Nations has hosted two sets of technical talks on the constitution with the various Syrian opposition groups, in Lausanne, in recent weeks, Western diplomats say.

UN: Syrian Kurds should take part in drafting new constitution

Erdogan has declared war on Syrian Kurdish population.

NATO’s member, Turkey, is invading Afrin, a democratically self-governed region in North Syria.

The canton of Afrin has been the most secure and safe region in Syria for its inhabitants despite the embargo. It is democratically governed by locally-elected councils and it hosts more than 300,000 IDPs from the other Syrian cities.

We implore the international community to act in the name of peace and justice, and work to halt this Turkish offensive with such efforts as instituting a no-fly zone over Afrin, sending a team of UN observers, or providing peace-keeping troops to secure the Turkish-Syrian border.
