ERBIL-Hewlr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', Diyarbakir's Peace and Democracy Party BDP mayor Osman Baydemir and independent MP Leyla Zana have arrived in Erbil, the capital city of Kurdistan region, to mediate between the Kurdistan Democratic Party KDP and the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party PYD.

Baydemir and Zana will make efforts to end the increasing tension between the PYD and KDP which began following the refusal of Iraqi Kurdistan region to allow entry to PYD co-chair Salih Muslim, and to bring together Kurdish political circles.

Turkish daily Milliyet reported Wednesday, that the Syrian Kurdish PYD leader Salih Muslim will meet with Massoud Barzani, the president of Kurdistan region, in Erbil and the meeting between Barzani and Muslim will be conducted with the aid of Turkish deputies; Leyla Zana and Osman Baydemir.

Baydemir said in a statement he made at the BDP representative office in Erbil that; "We have come to make a modest contribution to the talks," adding that he expected contacts would continue for several days.

Osman Baydemir said they would visit president Massoud Barzani, and that their discussions in the region would last for a few days, adding that the purpose of their visit was to lend support to an alliance of the Kurdish people. Baydemir stressed that peace and freedom in the Middle East was dependent on the Kurds, adding: "Without the liberation of the Kurdish people there will be no peace in the Middle East. In order for the Kurdish people to be free there is an urgent need for an alliance. There may be different ideas and views but finding common ground is essential. We have come to make a modest contribution to this search for common ground.

 

Leyla Zana said she believed that there could be problems between Kurdish political currents, and that they could be resolved. She emphasised that all the parties wished to reach agreement within the framework of the Erbil agreement. Zana went on: "We are extending our hand to those who have denied the existence of the Kurds for a hundred,www.Ekurd.net two hundred years. The greatest shame is for Kurds to turn their backs on each other. All the parties are prepared to come together within the framework of the Erbil agreement. As two representatives of the Kurdish people we wished to share this joy with them. I hope and believe that a meeting of all the parties will take place soon."

Last month the PYD, the biggest Kurdish party in Syria declared unilateral autonomy in Syrian Kurdistan region. Barzani had previously accused the PYD movement of the intimidating some groups allied to Barzani, while the PYD had accused Barzani of creating a second military force in the region.
