 On the importance of holding the conference at the Kurdish level, the former co-chair of the Democratic Union Party, Anwar Muslim, said, "The importance of the conference comes from the ongoing attacks and threats in Kurdistan, north and east of Syria by the Turkish occupation state, and the Kurdish issue that has been marginalized for hundreds of years which were further obliterated after the Lausanne Agreement, in which the Turkish occupying power played the largest role.

At the same time, openess to dialogue in Damascus to find a solution to all national issues, the Kurdish issue as a fair national issue within a consensual Democratic Constitution, one of the decisions issued by the PYD Party. In this regard, Muslim said: "To be a message from the heart of the party's conference to regime to return from his mentality and research for the Syrians generally from a central democratic system, within a consensus constitution, which will be achieved through the resistance of our party and forces, the parties to democratic opposition operating for the service of Syria are general, not the external agendas and interests., "he said. "The conference was addressed to targeting the Kurdish presence and the movement of Kurdistan freedom by the central and Turkish intellectual regimes and cooperation with the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the approach of treachery by the latter that  threatens the gains Kurds, including Başûr Kurdistan / Kurdistan Region of Iraq."

The conference also saluted the historical resistance shown by the Peoples Defense Forces and the Free Women's Units - a curtain to thwart the neo-Ottoman goals and ambitions, with what is known as their "Milli Charter".

 On the level of Northern Kurdistan and Turkey, Muslim explained that "the party's vision confirms that the crisis is worsening in Bakur (Northern Kurdistan), and that the solution lies in the Turkish state's dialogue with the Kurds, instead of what the Turkish occupation state has done of arresting parliamentarians, militarization, crimes and violations of human rights.  The human being is in early Kurdistan, which will only complicate the situation and worsen the situation.”

 Muslim stressed the party's position rejecting all agreements "concluded against the Kurdish cause, the Kurdish peoples, and their rights."

 He said: "There is information about agreements taking place in Başûr Kurdistan, some meetings and agreements, if they are against the Kurdish people, and the end of the Kurds, this is condemned, because the principles of our party oppose the agreements made against the Kurdish people and other peoples, and motivate us to stand in their face."

 Muslim revealed, "Important changes will occur in the party's work during the coming period. It will work at the level of northern and eastern Syria to support the Autonomous Administration, which is a new experience in Syria. As for the Syrian level, the party will work for Syria to be run democratically, so that all Syrians have a role in managing the country, and an end to the mentality of marginalization and denial.”
