Al-Qamishli: Kurdish Union Party withdraws from the National Union of the Forces for Democratic Change

KURDWATCH, August 18, 2011—On August 16, 2011, the Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî) announced its withdrawal from the National Union of the Forces for Democratic Change. The Syrian coalition was founded on June 30, 2011 in Damascus KurdWatch reported].
The Kurdish Union Party in Syria (Yekîtî) justified its withdrawal by stating that the founding declaration of the National Union of the Forces for Democratic Change did not formulate the Kurdish question clearly enough. Moreover, according to Yekîtî, the sentence stating that Syria is »an indivisible part of the Arab Nation« has led to confusion. Yekîtî further explained that it remains governed by the demands regarding the Kurdish question in Syria as presented by the Kurdish parties on May 14, 2011 KurdWatch reported].
In the opinion of Yekîtî, at this time it does not make sense to be part of an oppositional Syrian coalition. Thus, Yekîtî calls on the other Kurdish parties to pull out of the Damascus Declaration and the National Union of the Forces for Democratic Change for as long as the opposition remains split for reasons that have nothing to do with the interests of the Syrian people and the Syrian revolution. In the view of Yekîtî, the Kurdish parties should form an independent bloc before building a new union with these two big Syrian coalitions.
