The Kurdish National Council (KNC) will hold its second conference on January 10 to discuss the Kurdish position vis-à-vis Islamist groups and other Kurdish groups.
The KNC’s Secretariat-general issued a statement confirming the date and schedule of the conference.
A major topic to be discussed in the conference is the united position vis-à-vis the radical Islamist groups, such as “Jabhat al-Nasra,” and “Ghurabaa al-Sham brigades” which entered a town that is heavily populated by Kurds, in order to control the border exit with Turkey.
Another major topic is the position regarding other major Kurdish groups, namely the Western Kurdistan Council, led by PYD, a PKK branch in Syria. Western Kurdistan is a term that radical Kurds usually use to refer to North-Eastern Syria, a province where the majority of the Kurds are located.
A third topic is to finalize the Kurdish position vis-à-vis the National Coalition, the major Syrian opposition group, which has been regarded as the Legal representative of the Syrian people.
