Kurdistan National Congress (KNC) – Rojava held a workshop in Qamishli city of North East Syria on 8th July 2021, ANHA reported.
In the workshop organised under the title, “We will defeat the occupation with national unity, we will prevent a civil war”, the members of the KNC discussed the risks of the military campaign of Turkey ongoing in Zap, Metina and Avashin regions located in northern Iraq, administered by the Kurdistan Regional Government and also evaluated the stance of the Kurds in this period against a possible Kurdish civil war.
“The workshop was held with the participation of around 150 activists and individuals from various political parties, NGOs and tribes,” said Ekrem Hiso, an executive member of the KNC.
Participants of the workshop advocated for dialogue among the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and called on all Kurdish forces to implement the agreement of 1982 between the two Kurdish parties and suggested nine proposals to help find a solution.
The agreement was first signed in 1982 by Abdullah Öcalan and Idris Mullah Mustafa Barzani and later on in 1996 both sides reached a common understanding on ten articles of the agreement, which seeks to resolve conflicts amongst the Kurds through dialogue and development of a joint national liberation struggle of the Kurds.
The KDP officials were also called on not to send peshmerga forces to the zones of conflict where clashes between Kurdish fighters and Turkish armed forces are taking place.
At the end of the workshop a committee was formed. “The committee elected will be responsible to convey the decisions reached in the workshop to all Kurdistan and to all Kurdistani parties. To do that, visits will take place to South Kurdistan and Rojhilat [East] Kurdistan,” he said.
Hiso informed that he will visit Kurdistan Region of Iraq as part of the dialogue workshop committee. “The committee elected will go to South Kurdistan and conduct several meetings. We believe that we will arrive there soon.”
