As the deadline of announcing federalism in Rojava and all areas of northern Syria approaches, officials of Rojava self-rule administration confirm that the project of social federalism which depends on geographic bases, not ethnic, is discussed openly by superpowers, including the US and Russia. According to the head of Foreign Relations in Jazira canton, the opening of diplomatic missions for Rojava in Moscow and many other European countries is a sort of support for the project of federalism [of Rojava – Northern Syria] Officials also confirmed that a diplomatic missions for Rojava will be opened in Washington and London soon. In a few weeks, a diplomatic mission for Rojava will open in Washington We are working on arrangements to open a diplomatic mission in London as well Amid the destruction and the various efforts to find solutions for the Syrian crisis, our project of the democratic self-rule administration was the best. And now our new project [of federalism] has become the main case under discussion by the world superpowers Those opposing the self-rule administration say that the federalism brokered by PYD-led council (TEV-DEM) is inefficient because the Syrian government security forces are still in the Kurdish areas Moreover, they argue that the TEV-DEM brokered federalism is not backed by any regional or international political entity And the support that the US offers to the self-rule administration of Rojava is only military According to Syria’s Kurdish National Council (ENKS), the solution of Syrian crisis is in Geneva And the parties of the self-rule administration are excluded from Geneva talks Thus, they argue the PYD/TEV-DEM the superpowers do not support federalism The support offered by the US to the self-rule administration in Rojava is exclusively the military, the opponents of federalism say Concerning the diplomatic missions of the PYD-led administration, we would share or support if they were genuine we would support them if they were really recognized internationally The project of federalism as proposed by the [PYD-led administration] does not serve the Kurdish interests and the Kurdish question in Syrian Kurdistan The democratic nation that the [PYD-led] administration promotes is utopian The decision to be taken in the few coming days by the Organizing Council of federalism of Rojava-Northern Syria will set the official oath, flag, anthem, and the official name. According to the attendees, the federalism is to be announced based on the notion of democratic nation and peoples’ brotherhood This is why some political parties in Rojava don’t consider it a Kurdish national project for serving Kurdish question Reporting in Kurdish: Heybar Othman Translation: Hisham Arafat Editing: Ava Homa Kurdistan24 – Rmelan
