“The world must fulfill duties against Turkey’s attacks”
The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria called on the international public to fulfill their duties against Turkey’s attacks and stressed that all efforts in the current process should focus on the democratic solution to the Syrian crisis.
The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria Spokesperson Lokman Ehme released a press statement in the Foreign Relations Bureau in Qamishlo.
The statement included the following:
“The Turkish state continues to threaten the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria territories to tear down the democratic project that exemplifies the peoples living together, and to disrupt the security and stability in the region.
Any attack against the region risks reviving ISIS and the expansion of Turkish-occupied lands in Syria. These threats are the main obstacle on the path to a peaceful solution in Syria and the region, as well as the UN resolution no.2254.
As the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, we are calling on the global public, the Syrian public, all groups in Syria who favor a democratic solution and stability, all who want ISIS to end, all who want to defend peace in our region and all who stand against the fracturing of Syrian society and territory to stand against Turkey’s attacks and act responsibly.
The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria constituents have defended themselves against ISIS and defeated ISIS with support from the International Coalition, ensuring peace and security for the region and the peoples of the world.
In the current process, all efforts should focus on ending terrorism and the democratic solution to the Syrian crisis. This process is not one that can afford a military attack against the region where the fight against ISIS happened and the fight against ISIS cell structures continues still. There are camps in this region where thousands of ISIS members and their families stay. There are thousands of ISIS members in prisons where our forces work security and keep watch. There are some 5 million civilians in these regions, including many who were forced to migrate to a safe area from other areas of Syria.
Our demand from free peoples is to stand against the Turkish state aggression against the peoples of North and East Syria and to fulfill their humanitarian duty.”
