Syrian Kurds say they have postponed their declaration of a federal system of administration in the country’s north, in what would be a further step towards total autonomy in the region.
The exact reason for postponing the anticipated move was unclear, but Idriss Nassan, a senior Kurdish official, says the conference on making the decision would reconvene on Thursday.
The Britain-based Syrain Observatory for Human Rights said "logistical reasons" were behind the delay.
The largest Syrian Kurdish faction, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), is excluded from ongoing peace talks in Geneva.
