Germany proposes security zone in northern Syria to fight ISIS

Defence minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said it should include Russia and Turkey

An internationally managed security zone should be set up in northern Syria to “resume” the fight against terrorism and support displaced civilians, Germany’s defence minister said on Tuesday.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who said she had informed Chancellor Angela Merkel of her ideas, argued the situation in Syria required greater European action.

Turkey earlier this month launched a military operation in northern Syria after the withdrawal of US troops, vowing to remove Kurdish forces it sees as terrorists from the Syrian border region.

But the European Union fears the move could empower ISIS. Many of the terror group's members are detained in overcrowded local jails in north-east Syria.

"This security zone would seek to resume the fight against terror and against [ISIS] which has currently come to a standstill," Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer told German broadcaster Deutsche Welle.

"It would also ensure that we stabilise the region so that rebuilding civilian life is once again possible, and so that those who have fled can also return voluntarily.

"Europe cannot simply be an onlooker. We also have to come up with our own recommendations and initiate discussions."

She said the security zone would need co-operation from Turkey, which backs some rebel groups in northern Syria, and Russia, a key supporter of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.

"The alternative to that would be that the Europeans and Nato simply watch as talks between Turkey and Russia continue," the defence minister said.

"Russia is one of the most important actors in Syria," she said. "Regardless of whether one likes that or not, it is a fact that we have to deal with."

Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer is the leader of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany party and is Ms Merkel's preferred successor to lead the country when she steps down.

The proposal won the support of party ally Norbert Roettgen, head of the German parliament’s foreign affairs committee, who said the proposal was “brave and worthy of support”.

“A protective zone without German participation would be difficult internationally,” he tweeted.

But the move could raise tension with Ms Merkel’s coalition partner the Social Democrats who do not favour military action in Syria.

A five-day US-brokered pause in Turkey’s military operation against the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria is due to expire on Tuesday evening.

German foreign minister Heiko Maas previously described Turkey’s move into northern Syria as an “invasion” that violated international law.

What is the FNC?

The Federal National Council is one of five federal authorities established by the UAE constitution. It held its first session on December 2, 1972, a year to the day after Federation.
It has 40 members, eight of whom are women. The members represent the UAE population through each of the emirates. Abu Dhabi and Dubai have eight members each, Sharjah and Ras al Khaimah six, and Ajman, Fujairah and Umm Al Quwain have four.
They bring Emirati issues to the council for debate and put those concerns to ministers summoned for questioning. 
The FNC’s main functions include passing, amending or rejecting federal draft laws, discussing international treaties and agreements, and offering recommendations on general subjects raised during sessions.
Federal draft laws must first pass through the FNC for recommendations when members can amend the laws to suit the needs of citizens. The draft laws are then forwarded to the Cabinet for consideration and approval. 
Since 2006, half of the members have been elected by UAE citizens to serve four-year terms and the other half are appointed by the Ruler’s Courts of the seven emirates.
In the 2015 elections, 78 of the 252 candidates were women. Women also represented 48 per cent of all voters and 67 per cent of the voters were under the age of 40.
