Syrian Kurds not united behind opposition delegation to Geneva talks

Abdulhamid Darwish, veteran Kurdish leader of the Kurdish Democratic Progressive Party, is representing the Kurdish National Council in Geneva.

The Kurdish parties failed to have a united voice in the Geneva II conference, and the Kurdish National Council (KNC) will now be the only party that claims to represent the Kurds in Geneva II, leading to more tension on the ground in Syria.

Abdulhamid Darwish, veteran Kurdish leader of the Kurdish Democratic Progressive Party, will represent the KNC as part of the Syrian National Coalition negotiation team that will deal with the Syrian government.
