QAMISHLI, Syrian Kurdistan,— Salih Muslim, co-leader of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), denies reports that his forces have prevented Iraq's Kurdistan Region Peshmerga troops from entering the liberated areas of Syrian Kurdistan.

Several towns in Kurdish regions of the country saw the peaceful retreat of Syrian regime forces last week, in a dramatic shift in the 17-month revolution against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

The liberated cities are now being jointly ruled by the People's Council of Syrian Kurdistan, a designation of the PYD, and the Kurdish National Council (KNC). The KNC and PYD agreed to share control of Kurdish regions in a deal made in Erbil on July 11, under the supervision of Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani.

Speaking to Rudaw, Muslim said a delegation from his party visited the Kurdistan Region to meet with officials but did not discuss the issue of Peshmerga forces being dispatched to Syrian Kurdistan.

“The discussion was about the return of Kurdish soldiers who defected from the Syrian army and are now in the Kurdistan Region,” Muslim said.

He added, “Peshmerga forces are our brothers and relatives and we do not have any problems with them. But Syrian Kurdistan does not need assistance from the Peshmarga forces at this point and if the need arises we will ask for their help.”

In a recent interview with Al Jazeera, Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani said that defected soldiers were trained in the Kurdistan Region and would be sent to Syria to help with any “security vacuum” that might emerge.

Muslim told Rudaw that if the Supreme Kurdish Body decides the forces trained in the Kurdistan Region are needed,www.ekurd.net they can return to Syrian Kurdistan.

The Supreme Kurdish Body includes the PYD and KNC and is expected to act as an interim administrative body for the Kurdish areas of Syria.

The PYD, which has ties to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), has military control over several Kurdish towns that have been liberated in the recent days, including Kubane, Amude and Efrin.

Kurds have now appointed a new mayor for Kobane, signaling their readiness to run the areas they now control.
