In the last few months have exposed the Democratic forces of Syria's tens of thousands of fighters and civilians of the IS inter, including many foreigners. How do you deal with it?
We have more than 6000 foreign IS terrorists captured, among them many high-ranking commanders. 35'000 foreign women and children come about. There are now 56 nationalities. That so many of the terrorists are concentrated in a single place, it has never been. This is very dangerous, not only for us but for the whole world. But, together with the States of the world, we can find a solution for these terrorists.
How might this solution?
We asked a lot of countries, their citizens to take back, but there are only a few positive reactions came. Therefore, we want to now build an international court. It would be only fair that the terrorists in the Kurdish areas of judging, because you have cut off heads, women enslaved and raped. So that we can make the process, it needs the cooperation between our self-government and of the States of the world. We don't have the time. We need logistical and legal help from the outside.
And what should be done with the women and children?
most of The foreign women and children of the IS not killed and no weapons carried. If their countries of origin want to send people to visit their nationals, can we talk about it. At the Moment we are discussing in the self-management a lot about how an international court could look like. We can't find it, but not fair when countries, the state have camps nationals in our prisons and internment, participate in this Tribunal. Is one of these countries, Switzerland.
? Bern the self-administration already requested because of the six Swiss children, who are imprisoned by the DKS inter
Until now we had no official contact with Switzerland. If you would like to talk with us, please feel free to contact the office of the government for external relations. If I have understood the Switzerland right, you mind if we set up an international court for the trial of the IS-terrorists.
The United States want to reduce their in Syria stationed troops. What does this mean for the Kurds?
What the Americans are doing is entirely your decision. For us, it would be very bad, if you abzögen immediately and without coordination with us. As President, Trump spoke of a complete withdrawal, it did not a week, until the Regime began to threaten in Damascus is that it will conquer back the North-East. Threats also came from Turkey. The IS would take advantage of such a vacuum immediately. In addition, the Regime and the Russians were of the opinion reinforces that need it in Syria now, no political solution. You defeat the DKS in the military, and the could destroy the administration. If the countries in Syria's interests – such as the USA, Russia, Iran, Israel, Turkey, and others – not in a political dialogue, is the mean for Syria more war.
there Are already Commitments that, in addition to the United States or other countries troops in your area statio want kidney?
The Americans have told us that 400 of your soldiers will remain. The threats of the regime, the Iranians, the Russians, the Turks, and of the IS not stayed Washington hidden. Since the decision, all the forces withdraw, the Situation has calmed down again. We now hope that political dialogue is taken this seriously, and more likely to be successful. I also know that the US, the UK and France have agreed on the modalities of a protection zone, even if you have not done it yet to the public.

What is the for a protection zone?
you will be set up at the border to Turkey, but Syrian territory. In addition, the Americans are now negotiating with Turkey. Meanwhile, Ankara has realized that it is the Americans seriously when they say that Turkey should not invade the Kurdish areas of settlement. Moscow's response was to urge us to engage in dialogue with the Assad Regime. But then Russia and Turkey have suddenly negotiated intensively with each other, which is why then the Regime refused the further dialogue with us.
you are surrounded by enemies. You have to Predict that the US will protect them?
We have no Treaty with the Americans, but verbal Commitments. The Americans also want to ensure after the victory over the Caliphate for a certain amount of stability.
The IS is now more in Iraq and in the desert areas in the South of Syria. There are powers who want to preserve the IS?
Military, the IS is defeated, but there are still sleeper cells that carry out terrorist attacks. Further South, in the desert of the regime zone, it has fighters still groups of IS -. We know that there are several countries and parties that want to use the IS for your purposes. It is not excluded that the Regime has such intentions.
you were part of the Delegation that negotiated with Russia. What is Moscow's Vision for Syria?
The Russians have many interests in Syria, military and economic nature. Russia used the involvement in Syria to gain influence and to demonstrate strength against the Americans and Nato. Therefore, it is for Moscow at the Moment is not so important to solve Syria's problems. Because Russia has a keen interest in Turkey and in the dialogue with Ankara, is also the solution to the Kurdish question from the Russian perspective, not a matter of urgency. Nevertheless, the Russians operate the call for the Rights of the Kurds, sometimes as a means to put pressure on Ankara. But that does not mean that they love us. It is just a game, in order to help Russia's interests to make the breakthrough. This applies in General for the Big and regional powers. They all play with the Kurdish question.
What is more important for the Regime, Russia, or Iran?
Ideologically, and politically Damascus is close to Iran. But when it comes to Military, Russia is more and more important. Through its role in Syria, Iran rise to a regional power, comparable with Turkey or Saudi Arabia. On the other hand, the Russians are convinced that Assad, without your Intervention would have been lost in the year 2015 the war. Thus, the Russians have claims, and the Iranians in the way sometimes. Moscow and Tehran do not want to help the country, but it also yields. In addition, Russia has good relations with Israel, which would, in turn pushing Iran out of Syria. Therefore, Moscow is, however, that Damascus is working to closely with Iran. the Bashar al-Assad's visit to Tehran at the end of February, has angered the Russians very much. After that, it arrived in Syria to clashes between the fighting groups, supported by Russia, or Iran.
is it True that the Kurdish militia YPG and women's defense units YPJ are training thousands of fighters to launch an Offensive in Afrin?
This is true but not new. Since our retreat from Afrin in March 2018, we have trained fighters to liberate the city and the surrounding area from the Turks and their mercenaries. What is new is only that we have defeated the IS military and more resources, we can invest in the liberation of Afrin. Without Afrin in Syria is a political solution. The liberation of strategic importance to us. You just need to look at what is happening there. In Afrin it comes to massacres and looting. The Turks and their mercenaries try, with the settlement of Non-Kurds are changing the demography of Afrin permanently.
