ENKS waiting for US to resume intra-Kurdish talks 

The Kurdish National Council in Syria (ENKS) said on Sunday that they are waiting for Nikolas Granger, US Senior Representative to Northeast Syria, to resume intra-Kurdish talks.

Although two years have passed since the start of the intra-Kurdish dialogue, which takes place between the Kurdish National Unity Parties (PYNK) and the ENKS parties, with the aim of unifying their political position, many obstacles still remain before a final agreement can be reached.
The PYNK operates within the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES), while the ENKS is affiliated with the Turkish-backed opposition Syrian National Coalition (SNC).
Granger, during a visit to the Office of the ENKS in the city of Qamishli, on January 11, discussed a number of issues, including the intra-Kurdish talks.
The US envoy made it clear that the US is interested in dialogue between the Kurdish parties, according to Hassan Ramzi, head of the ENKS media office.
Ramzi told North Press that they are waiting for the American envoy as a guarantor to resume the talks.
The media office said that they discussed many important political issues during previous meetings, indicating that some points related to the social contract, education and compulsory military recruitment limited progress.
The intra-Kurdish dialogue started with an initiative launched by the Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Mazloum Abdi, to unify Kurdish ranks under US auspices following the Turkish military operation on northern Syria in October 2019.
