Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, said on Wednesday morning that the Russian Federation is pressing the Syrian opposition to allow for the Syrian Kurds to join the peace talks with the Syrian government.

Lavrov expressed his disappointment over the Syrian opposition’s continued refusal to allow for Syrian Kurds to represent themselves in Geneva.

The Syrian opposition is heavily influenced by the Turkish and Gulf regimes; this is one of the many reasons why they continue to ignore Kurdish demands.

Several Syrian opposition groups consider the Kurdish PYD regime to be a terrorist organization that is affiliated with the PKK.

Both the Syrian government and opposition have expressed their discontent over the PYD regime’s intentions to implement a federalist government in northern Syria.
