The talk of the joint presidency of the Executive Council of the Autonomous Administration of northern and eastern Syria Hemdan al-Abed came in response to the statements made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during the press conference after his meeting with the Iranian Foreign Minister.
He said, "The statements made by the Russian Foreign Minister" evidence that the possession of political and military decision in Syria is through Russia and Iran, and this is what we had at the conference of Astana and before. "
He continued: "We say in response to these accusations, that we are as Syrians as a mosaic of all its components and these allegations are false."
Al-Abed pointed out that "Daesh, and Jabhat al-Nusra and other factions have caused corruption and destroyed the infrastructure, and have abused the innocent citizens, suppressed freedoms, but SDF have defeated these organizations and liberated us from terrorism."
He said,"What the media is dealing with is aimed at undermining our achievements, which are ultimately only contradictions and interests between countries that want to share influence on Syrian land at the expense of our people and the unity of our territory."
He said in the same context to Lavrov "Even your ally, Turkey, if it withdraws from the Syrian territory it occupies, we will consider it a neighboring country. We are always open to dialogue and we hate hostility with anyone."
He said that Lavrov had accused the United States of trying to divide Syria by settling the Kurds in the territories inhabited by Arab tribes.
Lavrov claimed that he supports the Kurds to get their rights but Washington is trying to divide Syria by trying to separate it.
