Yûsif: Turkey wants to expand the life of the Syrian crisis
Foza Yûsif, co-chair of the Executive Council of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria, remarked that forces such as Turkey, Iran and Syria are not in favour of a democratic solution and insist on carrying out massacres.
The Qamishlo Canton Council held its annual meeting on Thursday at the Aram Tigran Culture and Art Center in Rimelan.
The meeting was to discuss and evaluate the work and activities carried out along the year.
Canton and regional councils joined the meeting.
Foza Yûsif, co-chair of the Executive Council of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria, spoke about the developments in the region.
She said that the sovereign nation-state system turned the 21st century into a century of war for the Middle East.
Foza Yûsif pointed out that there have been significant developments in recent years in the areas of strengthening democracy in Northern and Eastern Syria and ensuring that the peoples have their own administrations.
“For the first time in history - she said - peoples of Northern and Eastern Syria have been able to freely express their will and to vote in really democratic elections. The experience in Northern and Eastern Syria is a different experience and an alternative to existing sovereign systems. Therefore, the reactionary forces are very unease. These forces, - she added - do not respect the people's will and power and see this democratic experience of the peoples as a danger to themselves. Which is why they reject the democratic system in our regions. These forces are trying to impose their own system to the peoples of these regions in order to ensure that their central and sovereign systems will continue.”
Foza Yûsif said that the political forces in Northern and Eastern Syria are striving for a peaceful solution of the Syrian crisis and that they are not in favor of solving the problems by military means.
Yûsif added that democratic and peaceful solution are always to be preferred and added that forces such as Turkey, Iran and Syria are not in favour of a democratic solution and insist on carrying out massacres.
Yûsif underlined the latest threats issued by the Turkish state that vowed to occupy and attack Northern and Eastern Syria.
“During 2018, we worked for ensuring peace and security in Syria and eliminating DAESH mercenaries. - said Yûsif - However, the occupying Turkish state and Russia saw our efforts as a threat to them and attacked Afrin in order to force us to war. Our goal is that the experience in Northern Syria sets an example for the solution of the Syrian crisis.”
Ending her remarks Foza Yûsif said that the purpose of the occupying Turkish state was to destroy Syria by expanding the life of the crisis.
