On Tuesday, 18 April, the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria launched an initiative to resolve the Syrian crisis, in order to find a peaceful and democratic solution that will end the suffering of millions of Syrian people.
National initiative at a historic moment
About this, the Syrian writer and politician Mohammed Issa spoke to ANHA’s agency: "At a moment when initiatives claiming to be preoccupied with the solution of the Syrian crisis are competing, most of which are based on the perception of the issue by external and international forces and on their interests in the form to be taken or developed by the Syrian cause. Starting with Russian-Iranian efforts to pass a settlement its major goal is to normalize with the Erdogan regime whose features are about to collapse on the eve of the impending parliamentary and presidential elections and then the recent Jordanian-Arab initiative led by Saudi Arabia in this atmosphere of international and regional competition for the future of Syria.
Turkish convergence with Damascus... Path to failure
Within his context, the political activist spoke of the course of rapprochement between Damascus and the Turkish occupation the civil war on Syrian territory for more than a decade, involving the Turkish state and Erdogan's ruling coalition from the very outset through its direct intervention and support of armed terrorist groups with Islamic agendas such as Jabhet al- Nusra and ISIS, The Damascus authorities and many political and popular forces considered the Syrian State to be an aggression against the unity of the Syrian social fabric and then to deviate the revolution on its national and social tasks by militarizing and its implementation agendas of the global Muslim Brotherhood.
"In other words, no circumstances have arisen in the conflict equations that would lead to a historic settlement between the two countries and between the two peoples. Turkey's elections and Erdogan's need to improve his chances of winning them and employing the political settlement process to achieve them; the need of Russian President Putin for Erdogan's roles in his conflict with NATO in Ukraine "
"These data have made Russian efforts take place in a vacuum and have emerged as reflected in the results of the recent meeting of deputy foreign ministers in Moscow and the maintenance of the Syrian position in order to make a pledge to withdraw from the territory occupied by the Turkish side and cease interference in the Syrian matter while suspending support for armed groups as a precondition for pursuing joint efforts and the Turkish side's inability to commit itself as if it tries to collect what is not to be collected and that must eventually lead to failure."
No sincere intentions of Erdogan
The Syrian political activist stressed that "in fact, Erdogan has no sincere intentions of abandoning Syrian territory occupied by the Turkish side, which sings the revival of the Ottoman caliphate, and this tendency has always manifested itself under both secular and Islamic governments.
There is no convincing evidence that in the future Erdogan will not renege on any treaty or deal he may have to sign now. and no agreements that might be submitted to it would be beyond a tactical plan that would be called for today's election campaign, this campaign, whose engineers concluded that the launch of a formal political process entitled a settlement plan with Damascus for the repatriation of refugees would result in significant electoral gains at the Turkish street level.”
Arabic and Turkish convergence routes... Difference in understanding of the Syrian issue
Syrian political activist Mohammed Issa spoke about the course of Arab and Turkish rapprochement with the Government of Damascus, saying: "The Turkish and Arab approaches differ to the greatest extent in understanding the Syrian question and in looking at the parties to the Syrian national equation. While Turkey's initiative is based on the central objective of claiming the need for disposal, this is alleged to be the terrorism of the SDF and the danger of these forces to Turkish national security. The circle of this initiative is to engage the Syrian authority in conflict with these forces or to form an alliance with the Turkish forces to dispose of these forces and to foil their political experience of the idea of AANES and the SDC seeking to build a Syrian State for all its children and components in one democratic and decentralization Syria.”
The Arab Initiative, according to Issa, seeks "to find a solution in accordance with the terms of international resolution 2,254, one of which is to call on all Syrian parties to agree on a new constitution and a governance formula that all Syrians share in its consolidation. There is no doubt that the SDF and its Political Council are at the heart of Syria's accounts, the weighty force and the most visionary and convincing in its perception and work in Syria's future and for this future.
