Syrian Kurdish separatists Wednesday opened a representation in Moscow amid a push by the Kremlin to have them included in Syria peace talks despite Turkey's objections.The PYD was not invited to the Syria peace talks which collapsed in Geneva last week amid accusations from the West and the Syrian opposition that Russia's bombing campaign was targeting civilians.Russia's foreign ministry has appeared to distance itself from the opening of the Syrian Kurdish office, saying Kurdish interests will be represented by diplomats from Syria and Iraq.Shamoyev expressed hope that the rights of the Kurdish people to have their own "culture, language and self-governance" would be guaranteed by Syria's constitution and that Russia would help them with that.
