MSD: Astana agreement may disturb the country’s unity

NEWS DESK- The Democratic Syrian Council (MSD) expressed its worry about the so-called “De-Escalation Zones” and showed its anxiety as such an agreement would be moving conflicts to safe zones. The council also saw that these projects may cause Syria’s division.

Russia, Iran and Turkey reached an agreement “De-Escalation Zones” including Homs, Hama, Idlib, and parts of the capital of Syria Damascus, and it excludes the areas liberated by SDF.

The MSD released a statement contains the following:

At the beginning, the council expressed its advocacy to any agreement would cease the Syrian bloodshed “the last negotiations of Astana were held by Russia, Turkey and Iran between the armed-factions’ representatives and a delegation from the Syrian regime. These negotiations resulted in selecting four areas as ” De-Escalation Zones ” guaranteed by the sponsoring states. We in MSD support any agreement would cease the Syrian bloodshed”.

MSD considered the so-called ” De-Escalation Zones ” as distributing influence among the sponsoring states within bargains that are not really in the interest of the Syrian people”.

“We are greatly worried about these projects that may threaten the country’s unity as for land or people, and getting the Syrian crisis into another serious nationalistic and sectarian conflicts that would cause more destruction and killing.

“We in MSD would cooperate with everyone to cease destruction and killing, and SDF achievements are an evidence of our continuing in fighting terrorism and forming our democratic national project by federation project to solve the Syrian crisis away from suspicious projects that would increase the Syrian components ‘ division. Moreover, we address the Alliance States, the Russian Federation to not discriminate between the Syrian people, and it is impossible to solve the crisis without a real regard to the Syrian happenings.
