The areas will reportedly be named the Federation of Northern Syria and represent all ethnic groups living there, Idris Nassan, an official in the foreign affairs directorate of Kobani – one of three autonomous areas set up by Kurdish groups two years ago – told Reuters. The federal system would mean “widening the framework of self-administration which the Kurds and others have formed,” Nassan said.
A newly established system would see the autonomous cantons in Syria Kurdistan (Rojava) replaced.
Syrian Kurds effectively control a stretch of 400 kilometers (250 miles) along the Syria-Turkey border, from the frontier with Iraq to the Euphrates River. They also control a section of the northwestern border in the Afrin area.
