The Syrian Democratic Council

“SDC” holds the third dialogue seminar in Al-Hasakah.

Today, the third dialogue seminar was held in the city of Al-Hasakah in which it was organized by the Syrian Democratic Council in the regions of northern and eastern Syria, in the presence of personalities and cultural events, to discuss the prospects for a political solution, the challenges facing the region, and the role of intellectuals at this stage.
During the first part of the seminar, the co-chair of the SDC, Amina Omar, spoke about the political developments and updates taking place in the Syrian arena.
The co-chair of the SDC shed light on the reality of the region and the role of the intervening and active countries in the future of the region, whether in Syria or elsewhere.
She continued her speech about the Syrian file that “there is no soon solution for the crisis”, as a result of the different agendas of the overlapping countries and their conflicts and the difference in their priorities between maintaining the status quo and other countries seeking to change the reality in line with expansionist ambitions as Turkey does, which occupies a large part of northern Syria.
Regarding the efforts of the Syrian Democratic Council in the path of a political solution, Omar referred to their efforts to frame the democratic opposition and structure national consensus that would be inclusive and a starting point to achieve the aspirations of the Syrian people for the desired change.
She said that “SDC has a clear strategy in this path, and we have methods of communication with all Syrians for the success of the Syrian-Syrian dialogue, which is compatible with international resolutions, foremost of which is Resolution 2254.”
She explained to the audience of intellectuals and politicians that SDC did not reject a dialogue with Damascus government that obstructs the affairs and deals by the mentality of the central authority that brought Syria to what it has become. She explained that Syrian Democratic Council is open minded for a dialogue and negotiation with everyone according to a national agenda and a Syrian pure will.
The co-chairperson touched on the recent Turkish attacks and their escalation in the regions of north and east Syria, considering this a violation of the ceasefire agreements that Turkey has not committed to since October 2019, and attributed this to the international community’s complacency with Turkey’s behavior in Syria, especially in the regions of north and east Syria.
She indicated that there was a balance in the Autonomous Administration areas between the state forces located in the regions of north and east Syria, and that the plans that were seeking to undermine the will of the peoples and components of the region failed, also it established a state of harmony among the components of the region and it preserved the civil peace and strengthened the brotherhood of peoples.
During the second part of the seminar, Abdul Wahab Birani reviewed the role of the intellectual and the tasks which are supposed to perform in the society by him, especially about the Syrian situation, and the challenges facing intellectuals.
