RMEILAN, Syria: Syria’s three Kurdish-controlled regions voted to approve the establishment of a federal system in the north of the country on Thursday, defying warnings from Damascus and neighbouring Turkey against any such unilateral move.

The vote to approve a federal system in the three Kurdish-led autonomous areas was held at a conference in the town of Rmeilan in northeast Syria. The Syrian government immediately said it had no legal or political impact.
