The Syrian regime has closed the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria’s border gates for more than 20 days. Democratic Union Party (PYD) co-chair of the Euphrates Region Diplomatic Relations Office Bekir Hec Isa commented on the latest escalation of the Syrian regime’s hostile policies.
Reactions are mounting against the Damascus government, which has disallowed necessary goods from being transported to regions of the Autonomous Administration.
According to the Hawar News Agency’s report. Bekir Hec İsa said, “Those who have no will to solve the problem consider the embargo to be the easiest thing to do.”
Drawing attention to the Syrian crisis that has been going on for 10 years, Hec Isa said, “Seemingly, there is no political solution on the agenda of the Damascus government. It continues to wage all kinds of special wars against the Syrian people. It continues to terrorise by imprisoning people.”
İsa also warned that the Damascus government’s policies will not help to solve the Syrian crisis, adding, “The people of North and East Syria are democratically ruling themselves. Closing the doors on the Syrian people and pitting the tribes against each other is not the solution… A Constitution should be created in which all peoples living in Syria will be included. Rights and freedoms should be guaranteed constitutionally. What could the Damascus government gain, imposing similar embargo implementations on Shêxmeqsûd, Eşrefiyê and Shahba? What is it hoping to gain?”
İsa drew attention to the relations between the Syrian regime and Turkey and said, “As far as we can see, we know that the Damascus government has relations with the Turkish state. Because, as the Damascus government imposes an embargo, the Turkish state cuts the water resources of the region. Implementations carried out by the two proves their agreement. The Damascus government remains silent on the Turkish state’s attacks on North and East Syria.”
Noting the agreement between the Turkish state and Syria regarding the water of the Euphrates River, Hec İsa said, “The Damascus government acts against the Syrian people rather than reacting against the Turkish state, which is not complying with the agreement. This is the ‘starvation’ policy. It is not possible to accept this policy. Are you trying to destroy the Syrian Democratic Forces [SDF] because they have ensured peace and trust in the region?”
