"
The Syrian Democratic Forces par excellence
Sanhareb Barsoum explained: "But there were really no positive signs from Damascus to activate these initiatives towards dialogue." Indicating that, on the contrary, they find that such actions, especially with regard to inciting some Arab tribes, and pressuring them to withdraw from the SDF, come as a matter of discord between the components of the region, and drag the region into more unrest and instability.
The co-chair of the Syriac Union party called on the Arab tribes to be wise and read the reality and the future well, and said: "The unity between the components and the interconnectedness that the Autonomous Administration established is important at this stage." He called on Arab tribes and the people of the region not to be drawn into sedition that could lead to more wars in the region.
He explained that the SDF is not a client and traitorous forces, as the Syrian regime claims, and he explained: "Rather, they are forces that made thousands of martyrs and great sacrifices to liberate the region from ISIS terrorism." And added "The territories were protected from the control of these terrorist organizations, which are patriotic forces par excellence."
Sanhareb Barsoum noted: "We demand that the SDF be part of the defense system for a future Syria, and we confirm this."
Barsoum pointed out that the Syriac Military Council is one of the founding councils of the Syrian Democratic Forces, and participated in all campaigns against terrorist organizations, and said: "We confirm that the Syriac Military Council will remain within these protective forces of our peoples."
And he appealed to the Syriac peoples to strengthen the Syriac presence within the ranks of the SDF, stating: “The forces protected the area, and they have a political project to guarantee the rights of our Syriac-Assyrian-Chaldean people, as well as the rights of all other components in the region and Syria in general.”
The co-chair of the Syriac Union party, Sanhareb Barsoum, stressed the necessity of solidarity of all components of the region with each other. And he said, "With our solidarity, we show our true strength, and we prevent the occupiers from occupying our land."
Sanhareb Barsoum indicated that they stress the need to reach understandings with Damascus, in order to protect the region and maintain its security and stability in accordance with negotiations between the two parties.
