The Department of Foreign Relations of North and East Syria has issued a written statement on the drafting of a new constitution for Syria, confirming that the Autonomous Administration of Northern and Eastern Syria has shown continued and practical efforts for dialogue.
The statement included:
"After years of conflict and crisis in Syria, and the failure of all attempts to build stability and solution, the political solution and Syrian consensus is the only possibility and optimal, so that must be through serious and responsible positions of all parties, taking into account the reality of change in Syria and in particular the sacrifices made to serve stability and prevent partition.
The Autonomous Administration of the north and east of Syria has shown great efforts and practical efforts for dialogue. With the opening of all channels for dialogue and consensus among the Syrians, and harnessing the gains made in northern and eastern Syria to serve stability and build a democratic Syria, but the attempts were lacking the willingness of other parties and their lack of readiness in practice.
We reaffirm in the Department of External Relations of the Autonomous Administration of Northern and Eastern Syria the renewal of our firm stance on dialogue and its necessity to reach a Syrian national agreement. We also affirm at the same time that any efforts towards a solution, dialogue and advancement of the political process must be with the participation of all Syrians and the need for political will in the north and east of Syria, which represents the will of millions of different components in our region.
We consider the importance of drafting a democratic Syrian constitution with the participation of all Syrians and all components and regions, where the absence of any party means the absence of democracy in the constitution. We in the Autonomous Administration believe that excluding the will of our people from attempts at a political solution or any other efforts, in particular the reformulation of the constitution, is unfair in light of the sacrifices made for the unity of Syria and its people and in the interest of stability and democracy. This impels us to ignore any outputs reached without us, we think that seeing the Syrian scene in a practical and realistic way serves stability and solution, and the absence of any important Syrian part means deepening the crisis and this is contrary to our pursuit and efforts to serve Syria and its people.
