AANES welcomes intra-Syrian solution proposed in Arab summit

RAQQA, Syria (North Press) – Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES)  welcomed on Wednesday a peaceful solution proposed in 2022 Arab League Summit in Algeria and expressed its readiness for dialogues with all national powers to get a solution.

On November 1, the 2022 Arab League summit was held at its 31st session in Algeria under title “Reunion” following several delays. All Arab countries are scheduled to be represented at the event except for Syria, which has been excluded since 2011, owing to the government’s repressive crackdown on protesters and demonstrators.

Conflicts took place over several regional issues during the delays, the AANES said, in a statement.

Regarding to the Syrian issue, Arab leaders, in the summit, agreed on the importance of intra-Syrian dialogue and solution to get out of the crisis, according to the AANES.

Syrian crisis has been exacerbated during past years due to the absence of consensus on the intra-Syrian solution and dialogue, the AANES added.

In addition, the AANES stressed that Arabic orientation during the summit presents the right way towards solution and stability, and the only way to ensure geographical and societal unity, on which the AANES depends.

The AANES expressed its readiness for dialogue with all national powers that care about Syria and its unity and stability within the framework of an intra-Syrian dialogue.

It also highlighted that this issue should be fulfilled “within the framework of a Syrian political consensus solution that guarantees the rights of all Syrians constitutionally after 11 years of war, destruction and foreign interventions, and away from the Syrian regime’s insistence on dealing with the Syrian reality as if it had not changed.”

It also called on “all powers supporting this orientation” and Arab countries to cooperate to facilitate these steps towards achieving stability and peace in Syria and eliminating terrorism and the projects that divide Syria and threaten its unity.

The AANES was first formed in 2014 in the Kurdish-majority regions of Afrin, Kobani and Jazira in northern Syria following the withdrawal of the government forces. Later, it was expanded to Manbij, Tabqa, Raqqa, Hasakah and Deir ez-Zor after the SDF defeated ISIS militarily.
