Syrian Kurds will likely not attend Russia's Sochi congress: Politician

Reuters , Monday 22 Jan 2018

Syrian Kurdish officials will likely not attend a Syrian peace congress planned by Russia which has been rendered "meaningless" by Russian collusion with Turkey in its attack in the Afrin region, a Syrian Kurdish politician said on Monday.

Russia plans to host the congress in Sochi on Jan. 29-30.

Aldar Khalil, co-leader of a Movement for a Democratic Society, told Reuters the likelihood that Kurdish officials would not attend the meeting was greater than the likelihood of them going.
