MSD's Eli: The liberation of Afrin is a priority
MSD Presidential Council Member Hesen Eli talked about the proposal they made to the Syrian regime
Syrian Democratic Council (MSD) Presidential Council Member Hesen Eli talked about the proposal they made to the Syrian regime.
Eli said that "both sides agree that the Turkish state has no right to be anywhere in Syria".
Speaking to ANHA about the latest political developments, Eli said that “the ongoing war and the use of weapons have brought us to see the greatest damage to society today”.
Hesen Mihemed Eli added that he is confident that the crisis in Syria could be solved through national dialogue.
Talking about the meeting with representatives of the Syrian regime, Eli said: “At the beginning of the meeting we suggested to establish relation with the civil administrations established in the areas liberated from DAESH mercenaries by the Democratic Autonomous Administration. Because we believe that the achievements of the Northern Syrian people are an example of democracy and freedom and proved that these people can secure the areas they are in”.
Eli added: “Our main issue at the meeting was that in the North of Syria, all peoples, faiths, nations are governing through civil institutions set up within the frame of the Democratic Autonomous Administration”.
The Syrian regime, on the other hand, “proposed 107 articles of law on local governments in the country and decided to debate these articles. Talks between both sides will continue to find the optimal solution for autonomous and local governments”, said Eli.
The MSD executive also stated that “the unfounded assertions that Northern Syria will be delivered to the regime have the sole purpose to create confusion in the region. There is no possibility to bargain on the areas liberated with such a heroic resistance. We won’t get into this discussion with anyone”.
Liberation of Afrin
Another point made by Eli had to do with Afrin:
"Both sides [MSD and Syrian regime] agreed that Turkey is an occupying force and that it has occupied various centres in Syria, including Afrin. Both sides - he added - state that the Turkish state has no right to be anywhere in Syria”.
On the the occupation of Afrin, specifically, Eli said: “Talks are going on with various world government because the invasion of Afrin is an international issue and we defend the territorial integrity of Syria. The liberation of Afrin from the Turkish occupation will also be a message to the other occupied territories. The liberation of Afrin is our priority“.
