The Syrian Democratic Council: We welcome the Russian mediation between us and the Syrian government

The Syria Democratic Council welcomed the Russian mediation between it and the Syrian government, “which will allow the Autonomous Administration to carry out its humanitarian duty towards the Syrian people in the areas controlled by the Syrian government”.

The spokesman for the Syria Democratic Council, Amjad Othman, said in a statement, “The entry of basic materials and humanitarian needs will begin to tens of thousands of civilians in al Shahba areas in the eastern countryside of Aleppo and the Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood of Aleppo.

Othman added, “The Syria Democratic Council welcomed the Russian mediation that would allow the Autonomous Administration to carry out its humanitarian duty towards the Syrian people in the areas controlled by the Syrian government, and this is an interim agreement and we do not know how things will proceed in the future, but we call on the Syrian government not to politicize humanitarian issues again”.

Othman indicated that things have returned to normal in Qamishli now, and “we hope that it will stabilize in Hasakah as well”.
