The Executive Council Co-presidency of the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) released a statement on the agreements made first between the U.S. and Turkey, then between Russia and Turkey.
KCK said these agreements were “unacceptable” as they did not take the will of peoples into consideration, adding; “Those engaged in this political immorality are being an accomplice in Kurdish genocide. The U.S., Russia and all the political powers that are a party to Kurdish genocide will be tried by humanity and history as ‘genociders’.”
The statement of the KCK Executive Council Co-presidency reads as follows:
“The schemes and plot against the peoples of Rojava and North-East Syria continue. First the U.S., then Russia have made unacceptable agreements with the occupant and genocider Turkish state by ignoring the will of peoples. An immoral and unconscientious policy that tramples on human and society rights, is being imposed. Benefiting from the Turkish state’s Kurdish hostility, the U.S., Russia or other states sacrifice the Kurds for their own interests. Driving the Turkish state, which seeks to perpetrate a genocide of Kurds, into the living spaces of the Kurds, means nothing other than this.
Kurds and the peoples of North-East Syria have built the most democratic, peaceful and steady political and social system in the Middle East. Them coming under attack in spite of this truth, manifests the dimension of the hostility they are faced with. This takes its source from the Kurdish hostility of the Turkish state. The approval of the Turkish state’s hostility against the Kurds is the greatest and ugliest political immorality in world history and those engaged in this are being an accomplice to Kurdish genocide. The U.S., Russia and all the political powers that are a party to Kurdish genocide will be tried by humanity and history as ‘genociders’.
All humanity and democratic public opinion see the genocidal aggression aimed at the Kurdish people and have, for this very reason, stood up against the Turkish state’s genocidal campaign and against those who are a party to it. This uprising will take place all around the world on November 2nd. On this occasion, we salute with respect all the peoples and the democratic public opinion that will express their solidarity with the Rojava Revolution and the peoples of North-East Syria on November 2nd. The heroic struggle of the Kurdish people and the uprising of humanity will definitely triumph over the genocider Turkish state and its dirty partners.
The U.S. making an agreement with Turkey was a plot that sought to save U.S. President Trump and targeted the Kurdish people and the peoples of North-East Syria. It intended to stop the resistance of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) which has received the support of peoples all around the world. Russia making an agreement with Turkey, benefiting from the Kurdish hostility of the Turkish state, was aimed at eliminating the Rojava Revolution and suppressing the free and democratic system. Kurds and the peoples of North-East Syria want to create a democratic Syria basing on a democratic reconciliation. Russia, on the other hand, wants to drive the Turkish state, an enemy of the Kurds and Syrian peoples, into Syrian lands. Just like it has paved the way for Kurdish genocide in Afrin, it plays a similar role in North-East Syria today.
It is not possible for the Kurds and the peoples of North-East Syria to accept the occupant and genocider Turkish state even in a smallest inch of their land. In this respect, it is clear that they will not accept the Turkish state to patrol at the border alongside Russia, nor the SDF’s withdrawal from Rojava and North-East Syria. The administration of North-East Syria has already accepted the existence of Syrian and Russian patrol squads in the border area. Apart from that, how the political system in North-East Syria will be, and what role the SDF will have, is to be clarified only through negotiations. We believe that the imposition of fait accomplis on this matter will be confronted with the historic resistance of the peoples of North-East Syrian and their self-defense force SDF. In essence, the peoples of North-East Syria will resist in response to Russia and Syria trying to have their unacceptable impositions accepted with the threat of Turkey.
Russia and the Syrian state can ensure the solution of all the problems in Syria and the end of Turkish invasion only by establishing a democratic relationship with the Kurds and peoples of North-East Syria and clearing Syria of the invaders. Russia and the Syrian state should avoid mishandling and abusing the positive approach of the Kurds and North-East Syrian peoples. They should respect the democratic will of the Kurds and North-East Syrian peoples and turn this into a historic opportunity for the creation of Syrian unity on a democratic basis. The Kurds and North-East Syrian peoples have offered this opportunity. They should not sabotage this historic opportunity by making unacceptable agreements with Turkey and driving the Turkish state into North-East Syria.
The Kurds and North-East Syrian peoples should reject any and all unacceptable impositions through their resistance and the support of the world’s peoples. They should see the existence of a political atmosphere that will help them triumph in the event that they resist the impositions. In the reality of the Kurds and the Middle East, it is not possible to achieve any gain without mounting a resistance that risks sacrifices. When considered from this point of view, the current historic atmosphere and political landscape, which bring out great opportunities for the Kurds to succeed, should be handled and utilized well. In this case, resistance will frustrate all schemes and plots; Kurds and the peoples of Syria will win big with the support of democratic humanity. The political landscape and opportunities brought along by the resistance of Rojava and North-East Syrian peoples, have manifested clearly that resistance will triumph. On this basis, we wish success to the Kurdish people and the peoples of North-East Syria in their struggle.
All the Kurdish people, their friends and democratic humanity should answer the call to ‘Rise up for Rojava’ on November 2nd and make it a day of defeat for genocide and triumph by the peoples.”
