Yesterday, the representative of the Autonomous Administration in Europe, Abd al-Karim Omar, met with member of the European Parliament, Javier Nart, and they exchanged views on the latest developments related to the general Syrian affairs, and NE Syria in particular.

During the 2-hour meeting, which was held inside the European Parliament building, Abd al-Karim pointed out the urgent need to accelerate efforts to reach a political solution that would end the Syrian crisis, and put an end to the great human suffering endured by the Syrians at home and in the diaspora.

The representative of the Autonomous Administration referred to the terrible deterioration in the economic conditions of the Syrian citizens, pointing out that the deteriorating living conditions are one of the main reasons for the recent demonstrations in separate areas inside Syria.

Omar recalled the efforts of the Autonomous Administration to end the Syrian crisis, as he indicated that it had launched 2 initiatives months ago, one to find a political solution to end the conflict in the country, and the other an initiative to receive Syrian refugees and shelter them within its regions, in a patriotic and humanitarian step to contribute as much as possible to alleviating the pain and suffering of the Syrians.

Omar also referred to the difficulties and threats it still face on a daily basis: "especially the terrorist threat coming from ISIS and other extremist organizations," and in this context he pointed out the international community's reluctance to carry out its responsibilities, and its disregard for all their calls to cooperate in order to organize fair trials for ISIS members involved in committing war crimes against humanity, and who are currently detained in detention centers in NE Syria.

After that, the member of the European Parliament, Javier Nart, spoke, pointing out that he is closely following the situation and developments in Syria, and that he is fully aware of the great human suffering experienced by the Syrian citizens, as a result of the deteriorating economic conditions.

Nart, in turn, stressed the urgent need to accelerate the political process in order to reach a peaceful solution to the Syrian crisis, stressing the importance of the participation of all Syrian actors, including of course the Autonomous Administration, in charting the course of the political solution and the future of the country.

In this context, he praised the efforts made by the AANES to advance the political process, and said that he had seen the solution initiative launched by the administration, and believed that its adoption would constitute a basic pillar and a solid base for accelerating the path of a political solution.

The European Parliamentarian also touched on the dangers faced by the Autonomous Administration, saying: "The world owes it to the people of NE Syria, which were brave in eliminating extremist organizations that were not a threat to them alone, but to the whole world".

And he stressed the importance of the international community fulfilling its responsibilities by providing all kinds of necessary support and assistance to what it intends to do in terms of conducting fair trials for ISIS elements involved in war crimes, and cooperating with it to maintain security and stability in its regions, and to prevent the return of ISIS and all extremist organizations to reappear.
