[Turkey] also does not want to see Syrian Kurds carve out an area autonomous enough to allow the Kurdish People’s Party (PKK) to operate within. The PKK has waged a decades long war against the Turkish state and a safe haven in Syria would give them a huge boost, much like they received when they began executing attacks out of northern Iraq. [Wladimir]Wilgenburg said the Kurds won’t adandon their recent successes for the status quo.
“They will not go away. Their aim is to create something similar to KRG,” said Wilgenburg referring to the the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government in Northern Iraq.
Recently, Syrian Kurds agreed on ‘unity’ - brokered by Iraqi Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani (Erbil agreement).
And this piece plainly points out that Syrian Kurds is heading to establishing their autonomy - like Iraqi Kurds now has (and pushing further) in Iraq.
