The PYD co-chair, Asya Abdullah, demanded at the XXVI SI Congress in Madrid, that the organization take a firm stance against Turkish aggression of Rojava.
The congress is hosted by the Spanish Socialists Workers' Party, PSOE and will end today.
The PYD is a consultative member of the Socialist Internationalist. In her speech, Abdullah said: "This organization of ours was created to defend the oppressed and to achieve justice and equality among peoples. The hopes of oppressed peoples around the world are pinned on her. Therefore, failure to fulfill their duties with respect to the objectives of this organization jeopardizes its credibility, and the parties that are members of it find themselves in an embarrassing situation before their people and their supporters. The best example of this is the vague positions of the organization regarding what is happening in the Middle East and the Kurdish question."
Abdullah added: "We all hope that our organization will be able to adopt a clear and firm position in the face of the Third World War that is taking place in the Middle East, with the Kurdish question at its center. We are ready to fight for peace and a political solution. We did not attack any side. But we will defend ourselves and we have the right to defend ourselves. We call on all institutions and organizations here and the president of the Socialist International to help and end the war against our people."
