ERBIL-Hewlêr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — A senior politician in Kurdistan Region of Iraq has said that Turkey should accept to engage with all Kurdish parties and groups in Syria following the control of the Kurdish areas of the country by a number of Kurdish armed groups among them the Democratic Union Party (PYD) that Turkey accuses of having links with its own outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

Turkey has voiced concern over the control of the Kurdish territories in Syria (Western Kurdistan), on the Turkish border, by the PYD and has said It will not hesitate to use military force if a region was established in the country that’s controlled by the PYD.

Turkey fears that the Kurdish region in Syria will open a new front for the PKK who have attacked Turkey for years from their bases in northern mountainous parts of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region bordering Turkey.

Safin Dizayee, a senior member of Massoud Barzani’s Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) has told Today’s Zaman, however, that: “The concern that Turkey has with the PYD and other Kurdish groups in the area is something that Turkey should approach, not push away”

Dizayee has claimed that the PYD is not dominating other Kurdish groups in Syria and that the group is only “trying to fill a security and political vacuum” in northern Syria,www.ekurd.net abandoned by the Syrian forces.

“Some people have to keep law and order. The PYD and others were available to do that, for daily security,” Dizayee has said.

Dizayee has compared the position of the PYD I Syria to that of the Iraqi Kurdish parties in 1991 when Saddam Hussein’s forces withdrew from the region following the Gulf War. The 1991 power vacuum in Iraqi Kurdistan in 1991 led to the creation of the semi-autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan.

The Official’s remarks come as the Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is in Kurdistan Region for talks with the Kurdish President Massoud Barzani to convince him to cooperate with Turkey to not allow a PYD-controlled Kurdish region in Syria.

Dizayee has also dismissed speculations that Kurdistan’s currently strong relations with its neighbor Turkey might deteriorate over the Kurdish issue in Syria.

“The dark chapter between the KRG and Ankara has been closed since 2008. Since then we have been able to develop very constructive and positive relations, and we will continue to maintain that,”
