Umar: Catalonian recognition of AANES is the beginning

Co-chair of the Foreign Relations Department Abdul Kareem Umar indicated the step taken by the Parliament of Catalonia marks the beginning expecting similar steps be made by others.

In an interview with AMHA' Co-chair of the Foreign Relations Department Abdul Kareem Umar said that this bid of recognizing the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria as a political entity was a positive one, ''we believe that this decision was by virtue of role played and other NES components in the fight against terror that posed threats to the region and the international community at large'', indicating the step taken by the Parliament of Catalonia marks the beginning expecting similar steps be made by others.

The Parliament of Catalonia gave recognition on October 20 to the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria on the fourth anniversary of the liberation from ISIS of the city of Raqqa to be the very first of its kind as a formal recognition to the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria.

Co-chair of the Foreign Relations Department Abdul Kareem Umar said there have been points made the Parliament of Catalonia to give such a recognition to the AANES, :''the region(Syria) is ravaged by conflicts and sectarian wars, we were able to build after the agreement received of the Social Contract''.

Umar went on to say North and Eastern Syria is the sole region of the Middle East where three languages are adopted formally, Kurdish, Arabic and Syriac, in addition to the role played by women in the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria both militarily and administratively and the protection given to religious groups such as Yazidis and Christians, ''it was adumbrated in the Social Contract to give a positive preference to the Syriac component, this indigenous one''.

Umar said :'' I believe that all these positive points in the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria gave impetus to the Parliament of Catalonia to give recognition to the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria as a political entity that made civil society associations and activities in Catalonia to develop relations with Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria.  We depend on in developing relations with communities for we are not a nation state group. Countries deal with each other according to interest at the expense of non-state communities. We all saw when U.S president Donald Trump gave allowance to AKP to invade NES via a call phone how the American public opinion and community at home and abroad protested against the decision making a pressure on Trump to retract.''

''one another example was seen on the World Kobane Day how communities took to the street to express their solidarity with resistance put up at Kobane'', Umar said. 

Umar said the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria sent a thank you note to the presidency of the Parliament of Catalonia and  the Catalonian people as well, and all parties that advocated and supported the decision of recognizing the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria that is going to strengthen the ties with the Catalonian people and others friendly to the AANES.

Umar concluded '' there may be another bids by other parliaments of which that of Basque that is an autonomous community in Spain.''
