Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria renews call for national dialogue and political solution to Syrian crisis

NORTH AND EAST SYRIA – Since its establishment, the Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA) of North and East Syria has been seeking to find a political and social solution to the Syrian crisis and has, on several occasions, reiterated that the solution to the crisis in Syria is only possible through the efforts, involvement, and inclusion of all Syrians, from of all political and social spectrums and viewpoints. The DAA’s Foreign Relations Department in North and East Syria on Saturday renewed its call to all parties in the conflict, in a statement, that the crisis in Syria cannot be resolved except through a Syrian-Syrian dialogue.

“The DAA does its most to achieve this goal, including dialogue with Daramsuq (Damascus), but the principal dilemma is that the Syrian regime does not accept change in Syria and adheres to its previous mentality that led to this crisis and suffering in the first place,” the statement read. “The regime does not engage in serious dialogue with any of the Syrian parties, including not with the Democratic Autonomous Administration.”

The DAA reiterated its commitment to dialogue and a Syrian national solution. Such is a strategic basis principle and welcomed any mediating role, including Russia’s. Regarding Russian mediation in a solution, the statement read that the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov yesterday spoke about the Syrian-Syrian dialogue with the Syrian government. A positive step towards a solution, according to the DAA statement; “We hope that Russia will play a positive role in this dialogue. What we want to confirm is that the DAA supports such a national dialogue.”

“The DAA is ready to enter into dialogue with the Syrian government, but with the need to take into account the particularity of our DAA regions and our sacrifices in the fight against terrorism and for the sake of Syrian unity and its people,” the statement added.

Co-Chair of the Syriac Union Party (SUP) in Syria, Sanharib Barsoum, stated, “As DAA and Syriac Union Party in Syria, we are always ready for dialogue and meetings aimed to find a solution to the Syrian crisis. Unfortunately, we do not see tangible results from the Syrian regime.”
