Officials from the Autonomous Administration of Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava) are holding a meeting to decide whether or not they will implement a federalist system in the Kurdish controlled areas of northern Syria.

The Kurdish officials are expected to announce their decisions in the next 24 hours, while the U.N. sponsored Syrian peace talks continue in Geneva.

Earlier today at the Geneva III peace conference, the Syrian government and opposition both agreed that they will not seek to make Syria a federalist country.

However, the Kurdish PYD regime has vocally supported the federalization of Syria, along with the non-Gulf backed Syrian opposition leader Dr. Haytham Manna.

According to Reuters, a Kurdish official told the news site that the federalist state will be called the “Federation of Northern Syria”.

In a statement to Reuters on Tuesday, the PYD’s leader, Saleh Muslim, told the news agency that “we have said over and over again that we want a decentralized Syria. Call it administration; call it federalism; everything is possible.”
