Geneva – A delegation of the Democratic Autonomous Administration this week held meetings over several days in Geneva, Switzerland. On the agenda were the main dossiers in North and East Syria. The delegation discussed the dossiers with official, political and diplomatic foreign affairs representatives of many European countries and international and humanitarian Human Rights organizations.

Meetings continued for three days, during which the focus was on the main dossiers and issues of North and East Syria in particular and of the situation in Syria in general. The DAA delegation presented a comprehensive explanation of the situation and latest development; indicating numerous violations committed by the Turkish invader and its mercenary factions and criticism of the international wait-and-see attitude. The delegation addressed the suffering and displacement of the people of the DAA by Turkish military aggression and political attacks by many involved (proxy-)parties.
The DAA delegation confirmed the continuing activities by the Syrian Democratic Forces, in coordination with the international coalition forces, in fighting ISIS and other terrorist groups.
The dossier of ISIS detainees, their families, their children and the situation in the camps were also discussed. The delegation underlined the seriousness of this problem and considered it an international and regional issue and responsibility with very serious political and security dimensions. Many suggestions and recommendations were given on this topic.
European countries representatives in the meeting promised to provide the DAA with the necessary aid and support at all levels.
The DAA delegation emphasized the administration’s commitment to maintaining good-neighborly relations and developing relationships at all levels, pointing out that the DAA should be involved in the ongoing international constitutional negotiations in Geneva and international forums. European country representatives said that they will make the necessary efforts to involve the DAA in such international forums, since the DAA in North and East Syria has become the best option without any real alternatives.
The DAA delegation was thanked for its clear stances and its information on the situation on the ground and its achievements. Gratitude was expressed to the Swiss government for facilitating the event and meetings and to the European countries’ representatives for their attendance.
The organizers of the “Humanitarian Dialogue Center and the Syrian Center for Studies and Dialogue” affirmed their willingness to host and prepare more of these fruitful meetings in the near future.
