The Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria on Tuesday issued a public opinion statement on the Syrian regime's statements and accusations against the SDF.
The text read:
“After more than nine years of the Syrian crisis, which killed millions of Syrians among the dead, missing and refugees, While the Idlib region is a major threat to the Syrians and the world, with thousands of terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra, in addition to the Turkish occupation, which is existed on Syrian territory and supports mercenaries who commit violations and war crimes in all areas of their presence and Afrin was good example. Jarablus, al-Bab, and Azaz, while there must be a position on all this, what we see is the opposite. What we see is the opposite: there are still those who distort the sacrifices of our forces (SDF) on unfounded accusations.
Since the recent complaint by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Authority in Damascus, and accusing the Syrian Democratic Forces of a number of things that are not related to reality, these statements and others significantly impede the political solution and dialogue between the Syrians; It also gives the opportunity to external parties who want to exercise what is detrimental to the interests of the Syrians to implement their plans.
We affirm that the Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria as well as the Syrian Democratic Forces Are Syrian national efforts in combating extremism and achieving stability. And sheltering thousands of displaced Syrians, despite the difficult circumstances we live in, out of concern for the territorial integrity of Syria, we have consistently shown that dialogue is the right way to resolve all issues; But the negative rhetoric that emerges negatively affects the interest of the Syrians and never serves stability.
We also reaffirm as an Autonomous Administration of North and East of Syria that our position is consistent on the Syrian-Syrian dialogue and we see it as the only way to resolve the Syrian crisis, and we urge all who want to serve Syria and its people to express the same position seriously, and renew our pledge to our people to work within everything that serves the solution and stability in Syria with our rejection to any prejudice to our role and sacrifices."
