The tribal leaders in North and East Syria are using their leading roles to serve the Autonomous Administration. Sheikh Raxib Beşar El Faris, a leader of the El-Zubeyde tribe, also supports the idea that the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) needs to be recognised internationally, and that it is bringing together peoples who have had relations throughout history, according to ANHA.
El-Faris said that the atmosphere of peace and security that followed the Syrian revolution did not serve certain external forces. “The people of the region took another look at their interests and realised that the most appropriate solution model for them was an Autonomous Administration based on a democratic nation.”
El-Faris touched on the process of the establishment of the Autonomous Administration: “The Kurdish, Arab and Assyrian peoples are working to fortify the Autonomous Administration. The most important achievement of the Autonomous Administration is the empowerment of women.”
He noted that the peoples of the region are closing round the Autonomous Administration and ensuring the establishment of stability and peace. “The Arab people defend the Autonomous Administration, because this model stands at an equal distance from all the peoples. The Arab peoples are calling for the recognition of the status of the Autonomous Administration in the international arena.”
He went on: “There are certain small groups both inside and outside that are trying to wipe out the Autonomous Administration. The people of the region need to be very careful of this. External forces plotting to annihilate the democratic nation project are fomenting unrest between the peoples. Our people have frustrated their plans so far and will continue to do so.”
El-Faris called out to the Arab League and European countries on behalf of the Arab people and tribes: “Delegations have come to our region from a number of countries. They have all examined the Autonomous Administration from close up. They have seen the kinship of the peoples and the burgeoning model of equal living from close up. If countries want to see peace and tranquility in Syria, whether they have been here or not, they should recognise the Autonomous Administration.”
