DUBAI, — Syrian Kurds have been upset at controversial statements issued by head of the Syrian National Council Burhan Ghalioun in which he denied the existence of a Syrian Kurdistan.

Official spokesman of the Syrian National Council Ahmed Ramadan supported the right of Kurds to assume a common identity and argued that Syrian Kurds are no exception.

“Syrian Kurds are inseparable from their brethren outside Syria whether in Iraq, Turkey, or Iran,” Ramadan told the Kurdish-speaking Erbil-based newspaper Rudaw on Wednesday.

Ramadan added that unlike the current regime, the Syrian opposition recognizes the existence of a Syrian Kurdistan even though it is still within the borders of Syria.

“The Syrian regime could not deny the existence of Kurdistan as a geographical location,www.ekurd.net but it has always erased the cultural, historical, and demographic features of the place.”

Ramadan also said "The issues of federalism and autonomy should not be talked about right now in any way, the Kurdish parties in Syria have some views that do not match the reality of Syria."

For Ramadan, the Syrian regime has always wanted to get rid of all Kurds, but the Syrian opposition takes pride in the identity of its Kurdish people.

“The Syrian National Council is proud of Syrian Kurds and their flag.”

The new constitution of Syria, Ramadan explained, will include articles that will specifically refer to the protection of Kurdish culture and identity.

Ramadan’s support of Syrian Kurds came in response to the controversial statements issued earlier by head of the Syrian National Council Burhan Ghalioun in which he denied the existence of a Syrian Kurdistan.

“There is nothing called Syrian Kurdistan,” he said. “Syrian Kurds will be given their rights through the constitution like the rest of Syrian citizens.”

Ghalioun also rejected the idea of granting federal status to Kurds in Syria and called this project an “illusion.”

“Applying the Iraqi model is impossible in Syria.”
