The Syrian Democratic Council (MSD) in Egypt has called on the United Arab Republic to end the crisis in Syria, according to Hawar News Agency.
Recalling the United Arab Republic’s decisions on Turkey’s occupation of Syrian territories, the MSD stated, “Your parliament claimed Turkey’s actions threatened Arab national security, international security and peace when Turkey launched a hostile assault against Syria’s lands on October 2019. Those assaults and its outcomes are a new stage in Turkey’s repeating violations and interventions, and those assaults on the soveregnity of United Arab Republic are unacceptable. Also, Syria’s efforts to defend its lands and stand against the enemy are within the scope of the United Nations (UN) agreement’s 51st article regarding legitimate defence”.
Drawing attention to Turkey’s aim to change the region’s demographics, the MSD noted that Turkey’s actions were war crimes and must be investigated and judged by international courts.
‘Turkey continues its crimes’
The MSD said the United Arab Republic’s decision was positive and that urgent diplomatic and military sanctions should be imposed. The MSD also pointed out that Turkey continued its crimes by taking advantage of its meetings with Arab countries in order to carry on its hostile policies.
Recalling the crimes committed by Turkey and its mercenaries in North and East Syria and the Arab countries, the MSD told the United Arab Republic that serious work was needed at an international level to solve the issue.
The MSD went on to claim that the solution was possible only via political methods, adding, “The Syria crisis should be solved in accordance with international and legitimate decisions, especially considering the 2254th article of the Geneva Agreement, signed in 2012. We state that the negotiations between the Damascus government and the opposition should be launched again. Effective opposition forces in Syria such as the MSD should participate in the negotiations”.
The ISIS threat
Drawing attention to the crimes committed by Turkey in the region and the fact that they could pave the way for a return of ISIS, the MSD used the example of Turkey’s assaults on North East Syria, especially in Ain Issa and Dêrik, while asking international powers not to remain silent on Turkey’s actions in the region.
The MSD said the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria faced significant difficulties due to the existence of ISIS members’ families in the region and called for establishing a terror court to judge those ISIS members.
Lastly, the MSD called on the United Arab Republic to support the dialogue with Kurds for the solution of the crisis in Syria.
