A senior official in the North and East Syrian Autonomous Administration believes that Russia's position on the survival of the Syrian Kurdish Autonomous Administration is vague.

Badran Chia Kurd, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Council of the North and East Syrian Autonomous Administration, called Russia's position on the Syrian Kurdish self-government unclear and neutral.

"It is not clear exactly what Russia's policy on self-government is. It has neither accepted nor demanded that it be dismantled," he told Hawar News about what policy Russia is following in Syria Kurdistan.

Explaining Russia's position, he added: "They have told us in various meetings that they will not interfere in our negotiations with Damascus, whether it is a matter of self-government, federalism or autonomy."

Chia Kurd added that Russia obviously wants all of Syria to be under the control of the central government, but has not strongly opposed the establishment and existence of self-government.

"In fact, Russia's main demand is not for the region to be self-governing," he said. "Russia accepts cultural rights. Other than that, we do not know anything about Russia's position."
