BETH NAHRIN — During the Fifth Founding Conference of the Bethnahrin National Council (Mawtbo Umthoyo D’Bethnahrin, MUB), which was held on the 5th and 6th June, Comrade Michael Naim Hadodo was unanimously elected as MUB president for another tenure.
The Conference was held with the participation of 179 MUB members from various countries within MUB institutions. Members of the MUB general and organizational bodies and all leadership branches were also elected.
During the conference, the MUB President Hadodo reviewed the gains and pains that occurred during the contemporary era of the Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian-Aramean people.
The conference attendees stressed full determination to continue the political and military struggles in the face of totalitarian, radical, religious and sectarian regimes in the Middle East.
The participants also revealed their intention for advocacy and mobilization in international forums against the Turkish policies, which complete the ethnic cleansing of the Ottoman Empire against the Christian peoples.
The conference attendees supported efforts to establish a joint military force that protects the oppressed peoples and communities in the Middle East.
The MUB stressed that it will continue to work hard under the umbrella of the Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA) of North and East Syria, in order to ensure the rights and national identity of the Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian-Aramean people.
It also emphasized continued work to achieve a federal system in Lebanon that guarantees the rights and national identity of our people there. This can be achieved by confronting forces that exploit sectarian and religious diversity in Lebanon to achieve certain ideological interests and goals.
With regard to Iraq, the MUB revealed its intention to demand the Baghdad government and international community to establish an autonomy for the Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian people in the Nineveh Plains Region, in implementation of the Iraqi constitution.
