A delegation from England has met with representatives of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria in Rojava.
A delegation chaired by UK’s Special Envoy for Syria, Martin Longden met with representatives of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria in Rojava. The delegation from England was received at the Sêmalka border crossing by the co-chairs of the Foreign Affairs Department, Abdulkarim Omar and Daniya Ramazan, and the chair of the Women's Committee, Zeynep Saroxan.
During the one-hour discussion, the two sides talked about the fight against ISIS and the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic in northern and eastern Syria. After the meeting, Abdulkarim Omar told ANHA that the Autonomous Administration welcomed the visit from England, saying: "Britain plays an important role in the international coalition against the ISIS. Along with this, Britain also plays an important role for a solution of the Syrian crisis according to international resolutions".
The Autonomous Administration agreed with the British delegation that the Syrian crisis had to be solved by democratic and peaceful methods and with the involvement of all population groups. The meeting also discussed the humanitarian situation in the autonomous regions and in particular the impact of the pandemic, Abdulkarim Omar said.
After the meeting, four orphans, whose parents were British nationals and members of the ISIS, were handed over to the care of the delegation from England.
