The Kurdistan Region dealt peacefully and independently with the happenings in Western Kurdistan and Turkey, while Russia and the United States mutually place Turkey into the war equation. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) even if it had to, they made the right decision when allied with the Assad Regime.
We will not discuss how the coalition was formed and who played a role in. We will discuss this with all details available to us at another opportunity, but the Kurdistan Region could take advantage of it from the equation and got a pressure card on Turkey. Here’s how.
In the agreement between the United States and Russia, Russia became the first owner of the energy file, especially natural gas in the world, particularly in the Middle East. Russia is the first in this sector and after him is the Islamic republic of Iran and then Kurdistan region comes. Events and signs point to the fact that in addition to the energy corridor from Qatar to Turkey and to Europe, another energy corridor for natural gas will be created, which is the Russian line through Iran and comes to the Kurdistan Region and then toward Syria then to the Mediterranean sea as it has been clear from the map.
This has caused Turkey to block this path very deeply, while for us Kurds there were two ways to have an alternative to Turkey in the future either Kurds make an agreement with the Assad regime, or any force that gains influence from Kurdistan’s geographical border with Syria, it must be within the framework of Russian influence. The Kurdistan Region must receive an international card to divert its natural gas from Turkey to Syria and from there to the Mediterranean Sea without Turkey using our gas.
Turkey has planned the equation carefully, so he does not want to implement its threats against the Kurdistan Region, because he knows that he will pay a price for the region’s need for natural gas, which is at least 40% of Turkey’s hopes for the future. Turkey knows that the road from Syria to the Mediterranean Sea and the energy pipeline only needs to be repaired. There is also a route in the Kurdistan Region, but the geography of the region is the same which Qatar corridor goes on the American’s energy road at the end. The Iran’s gas goes through Russian corridor and Kurdistan region locate on the corridor that pass through Syria. So this is a big card that comes to the region.
Turkey’s attack on the West is short-term and will end in the war zone, Kobani, Manbij, which are located on the M4 trade line, which Russia does not want this line to fall into Turkey’s hands. Therefore, there is no hope for Turkey to create a peace zone in these four areas. Negotiations are moving in the direction of leaving a zone for the Syrian opposition, which is now under Turkish control. He must leave Syria and only 10 km can enter Syria when necessary.
None of the four regions are still in Turkey’s hands. This is due to the agreement between the United States, Russia, Syria and Turkey, but the loser in this game is Erdogan and Iraq, because there is a pressure on Iraq, which will eventually have about 20,000 Isis prison fighter stay in his jails. If they prove this to Iraq, Iraq will become a European and Asian Guantanamo Bay. Instead of Europe, the United States, Russia and other countries will taking back ISIS fighters in any times. Thus in any cases they will released them and used.
