ANHA has conducted an interview with the General Coordinator of the Syrian National Democratic Alliance under the umbrella of the Syrian Democratic Council (MSD), Ahmad A'araj, on the Syrian-Syrian dialogue forum held in the city of Kobani.
A'araj stressed "At the beginning of the crisis, we stressed that the solution in Syria is political. Now we are in dire need of launching a comprehensive Syrian national dialogue, and the Syrian regime must take this step, without the consensus of all forces and parties, no solution is achieved.
He continued that these national dialogues began in the regions of northern Syria, "and the initiative of some national forces, including Syrian Democratic Council, which began several dialogues were in Ain Issa and recently in Kobani."
He pointed out that the discussions held in Kobani on 27-28 March were focused on setting a road map to end the crisis in Syria, stressing that Syria will not return as it was before 2011, where objective and pragmatic discussions were held to move to a pluralistic democratic Syria.
Damascus must move ...
On the necessity of the consensus of all forces - the regime, the opposition and other forces said Ahmed A'araj "these discussions should start from Damascus with guarantees for national forces to participate without pursuing security questioning and that all citizens should be free to express themselves and that all national forces should take part in Geneva, Sochi and Astana, where some national forces, including MSD were excluded. "
"The road map should be the beginning of a decentralized democratic Syria, and on the basis of it, we turn to the constitution. "
"We are trying to bring about a change in the structure of the regime and the constitution, but on the condition it is not imposed or prepared in advance by a state or an agenda. "
Idlib file is stuck
Regarding the issue of Idlib, Russia and Turkey's policy on the region, especially after Daesh defeat, A'araj pointed out that there were several unresolved issues, including the end of the terrorist organizations in Idlib. We saw how it was agreed on in Astana on displacing Afrin people and withdrawing mercenary factions from Damascus and other areas towards Idlib and Afrin. We saw how Turkey could not end the existence of the terrorist organizations in Idlib. We expected that Turkey was the supporter of these terrorist organizations. When Turkey failed to cut parts of north- And failed to invade the Syrian north became forced to withdraw from Idlib formally.
Daesh appear in Idlib and northern Aleppo
Despite the elimination of Daesh mercenaries in northern and eastern Syria, terrorist organizations are still holed up in some areas of northwestern Syria. In this regard, he stressed that the danger of these terrorist organizations did not end with the presence of Turkey, which provides support to these organizations, adding, "Daesh began to appear in Idlib and north of Aleppo."
so Russia must end the file of terrorist organizations and also to end the Turkish presence in the region
Turkey hinders Syrian consensus
On the negotiations that were discussed between the Syrian Democratic Council and the Syrian regime, Ahmed A'araj said: "When the dialogues between the Syrian Democratic Council and the Syrian regime began, Turkey tried in some way or another to obstacle agreement between the two sides. Turkish presence in north of Syria must end in order to reach consensus to meet the aspirations of the Syrian people and return the displaced to their homes and end the situation of demographic change.
"Setting a road map is the only way to end the Syrian crisis to reach a decentralized, democratic and Syria," concluded the Ahmed al-A'araj.
