This came during an interview conducted by our agency with the co-chair of al-Shahba canton council Emad Dawood to talk about the Turkish violations against the northern regions of Syria and the Russian and the Syrian regime's position on these violations.
Dawoud pointed to the ambitions of the Turkish state in Syrian territory, which root back to the beginning of the last century where there were projects of division of the region among Turkey, Britain and France according to the interests of those countries.
He pointed out that Turkey is seeking to occupy the northern regions of Syria and annex it to the Turkish territory, as it did formerly with Iskenderun, stressing that these endeavors and attempts violate all international conventions and laws and violate sovereignty and interference in the internal affairs of Syria.
Emad Dawood criticized the position of the Syrian regime on the Turkish violations, and said in this regard, "The positions of the Syrian regime has become dependent on the current stage of the Russian and Iranian position, and today Turkey is concluding agreements with Russia at the regional and international level with a view to cut off part of the Syrian north and annex it to Turkey, the construction of the partition wall in Afrin, but the regime shows only shy positions and statements.
He also noted that all the meetings and conferences held on the Syrian crisis do not concern the Syrian people. "These agreements, both in Sochi and Astana, are agreements between Turkey, Iran and Russia, meaning that the Syrian parties have no opinion. The three at the expense of the Syrian people, and this is what we see today: the construction of the partition wall in Afrin, as well as in the regions of Azaz and al-Bab and Jarablus, where the Turkish state escalated its Turkification policy, in addition to the forced displacement against the people of Afrin.
The co-chair of al-Shahba canton council Emad Dawood called upon Russia and the Syrian regime to express firm positions on the Turkish state's efforts to occupy northern Syria.
