Syrian Kurd Leader Detained In Prague

"Upon finding the person in question was in the Czech Republic.it was demanded that he be captured and arrested to be extradited", the ministry said in a statement.

Turkey's ministries were working to secure the extradition of Muslim, said Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag.

Salih Muslim, a prominent Syrian Kurd politician, was attending a conference in Prague when he was arrested by Czech authorities on Saturday.

Czech authorities stated that a court will decide whether Muslim will be officially arrested, and the court decision will be conveyed immediately to the Turkish officials, Turkish state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

Saleh Muslim is the co-chair of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), a party Turkey considers linked to PKK.

Turkey launched the so-called Operation Olive Branch in Syria's Afrin on January 20 in a bid to eliminate the YPG, which Ankara views as a terror organization and the Syrian branch of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).




Czech police confirmed that a 67-year-old man had been apprehended in Prague at the behest of Turkish Interpol, but did not specify the suspect's name.

Turkey launched an operation into Afrin on January 20 with the aim of driving the PYD and its militia out of the enclave. However, the meetings did not achieve major outcomes.

But it added that Turkey "will remain resolute in fighting against the terrorist organisations that threaten the territorial integrity and political unity of Syria".

"This individual was lying to the media about our operation in Syria".

According to the Turkish General Staff, the operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkey's borders and the region as well as to protect Syrians from terrorist oppression and cruelty.
