BASEL (ANF) – Saleh Moslem said everyone should recognize Rojava now, adding; “Those supporting and standing by ISIS should know that they will be facing not only Kurds but also the world peoples from now on.”
PYD (Democratic Union Party) Co-chair Saleh Moslem spoke to ANF about the recent developments in Rojava and Syria, and the plans of international powers on Syria.
‘ROJAVA WILL BE INTRODUCED TO THE WORLD THROUGH THE MISSIONS ABROAD’
Moslem said their diplomatic works in the international area continued progressing, recalling that a mission will be opened in Moscow, Berlin and Viyana in the coming period for the representation and introduction of Rojava’s Democratic Autonomy system to the world.
Moslem said this missions will serve to step up the diplomatic works on Rojava, give voice to the problems of Rojava people and urge international human rights organisations to display sensibility towards the developments in the region.
‘JARABLUS IS A PART OF ROJAVA’
Pointing to the ongoing works of reconstruction in Rojava, Moslem said; “There is not only war in Rojava. Our people are on one hand healing thee wounds they suffered in the war, and on the other hand they are expanding the building of a system for co-existence.”
Moslem avoided giving a clear answer to the question if YPG would launch a new operation on Jarablus in the coming days, saying; “Jarablus is a part of Rojava. An operation by YPG/YPJ on that area is a military case. YPG’s goal is to protect the peoples of Rojava and they must be considering an operation on Jarablus but we do not know clearly if or when they would do that.”
‘AKP WILL CONFRONT THE WORLD IF KEEPS SUPPORTING ISIS’
Describing AKP government’s policies on Rojava as totally wrong, PYD Co-chair underlined that every single power that supports ISIS has a wrong place in the eyes of the world peoples.
Remarking that the AKP government should abandon its wrong policies on Rojava, Moslem said; “If the AKP government keeps supporting ISIS, it will be confronting the whole world from now on. Those who pursue an anti-Kurd policy by aiding ISIS do at the same time pursue an enmity towards the world peoples. In this regard, it should be known very well that ISIS is an enemy to not only Kurds but also all the world peoples.”
‘RESOLUTION METHODS SHOULD BE FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL SYRIAN PEOPLES’
Referring to the talks of international powers on the future of Syria, Moslem emphasised that any resolution method to be agreed on should be for the benefit of all the peoples living in Syria.
Noting that Russia intervenes Syria to help the Assad regime, PYD Co-chair said; “Besides Russia, all the other powers are somehow involved in Syria at the moment. We hope they will perform works to provide political support to the future of the country. If these powers happen to pursue a politics far from a political resolution, this will make the peoples living there face more unfavorable situations.”
Moslem pointed to the fact that the democratic autonomous system built in Rojava is being protected and supported by all the peoples there because it is grounded on basic human rights and democracy. He stressed that the peoples in Rojava will fight against those who happen to object to this system in the same way they are fighting the ISIS for democracy and human rights at the moment. “When necessary, the Assad regime too could be confronted.”
‘ROJAVA MODEL IS THE FUTURE SYRIA’
Moslem said they are the only side that have a project for the future of Syria, noting that the system currently built in Rojava is the future Syria.
“In the midst of the war in Rojava, peoples are building a system which they have long desired and wanted” he said, and underlined that everyone should act by supporting this system and the works for reconstruction.
