The elites and figures of Syria expressed their rejection of Turkish threats and Turkey’s settlement project in the North of Syria, calling for resolving all issues by dialogue and peaceful methods away from the war and violence that have exhausted the Syrians.
This came during an official statement signed by more than one hundred and thirty Syrian figures including journalists, writers, politicians, artists, activists and researchers, entitled “A statement by national powers and Syrian public figures in order to stop the threats of war and violence in the North of Syria”.
These elites expressed their fear of the danger of Turkey continuing its war on the Syrian North and making the country as a catastrophic situation that may end it after the disaster experienced by Syrians. “Our country is now threatened by an imminent danger that may end it and make its reconstruction an unattainable dream and perhaps impossible, if the Turkish government implements its threats and launches its military operation or its fifth war in the North of Syria” those elites said.
The signatories of the statement believe that Turkish concerns and demands can be dispelled by dialogue and negotiation. “There is a good understanding of the Turkish keenness on the national security by the friends and opponents of the Turkish government in Syria, as it is obvious in Turkey, it is a demand that everyone believes the possibility of achieving it by dialogue and negotiation, to dispel concerns and develop guarantees for all” the statement said.
“We believe that attempts to beat the drums of war and resolve the issue by violence are only an exacerbating and establishing a situation of hostility that Syrians of all affiliations do not want,” The statement said.
The statement added that the choice of war and violence will harm everyone and will establish a state of hostility after the government and people of Turkey received Syrian refugees fleeing from the massacres of the authoritarian regime and its absolute violence as well as the rest of Syrians in the North of the country whether they are Arabs, Kurds, Syrians, Turkmen or otherwise, as the statement described.
“The implementation of the announced plan to return hundreds of thousands of refugees and resettle them on the border in improvised housing complexes will not have the effect that the Turkish government mainly wants, because it will exacerbate social contradictions in Syria because it is close to the border, and repeat experiences of demographic engineering that have become from the past, and their repetition cannot be succeeded with the disasters that have caused where the world is still affected by their repercussions” Regarding Turkey’s projects in northern Syria and the settlement of thousands in areas other than their original areas, the statement said.
The statement called on the parties to adhere to peace, understanding and abide by international laws and resolve the Kurdish issue by dialogue with all parties, by saying that “We call for adherence to peace, dialogue, understanding and abide by international laws from international law to human rights regulations. This is the right path to resolve the Kurdish issue by the Kurdish – Kurdish, Kurdish – Arab and Kurdish – Turkish dialogue; it is also a right method to resolve the Syrian issue; it is the only possible method for any safe and civilized future”.
The statement was concluded by calling on the Turkish government to retreat from the path of war and ruin, and they appealed to the United Nations, the Global Coalition to combat terrorism and the European Union in order to do everything that would prevent the disaster facing the country, and also called on the peoples of the world and its freemen to join them and support their call.
