An open letter to: Secretary General of the United Nations and International Special Envoy for Syria

Mr. Antonio Guterres
Secretary General of the United Nations.

Mr. Gir Pederson
International Special Envoy for Syria.

 The Syrian crisis in its ninth year is still going on despite the efforts of the United Nations representatives to break the intractability and open the way to a solution, through the formation of a constitutional committee on three fronts, but they exclude representatives of self-administration regions which were the only regions that represented the equation of the Syrian solution in terms of confronting fascist organizations such as ISIS and al-Nusra and those associated with them, or by providing the model of change that Syria needs. A typical image was fostered among the components of the region , security and civil peace were achieved through thousands of martyrs from SDF which worked to eliminate ISIS in field . Such terrorist organizations constituted a real epidemic to the world and an unlimited danger. SDF achieved with the coalition forces a victory for humanity and general democratic societies. The struggle still continues at the same pace until the sources of extremism are drained, its ideology and sleeper cells are uprooted. At the same time they ( SDF) continued to call for the unity of Syria and its people. As a result of this struggle, there is now a safe and stable area that respects the international covenants related to non-interference in the affairs of neighboring countries, and have a civilian administration from all components of north and east of Syria to serve more than 5 million Syrian citizens and an area of ​​not less than 30% of ​Syria. In addition, our regions are home to hundreds of thousands of Syrians displaced from areas of violence and tension and are taking important steps in sustainable development. Furthermore , the self-administration is detaining about 70,000 of 60 non-Syrian nationalities of thousands of ISIS fighters and their families. This number is a heavy weight for self-administrators and a threat to security and stability of the region and the world.
In light of the mentioned information, the political solution and its mechanisms are discussed; the solution that we are with and support it. We consider the formation of a committee to draft the Syrian constitution and the complete absence of representatives of north and east of Syria as a surprise for us. We feel unfairness in the absence of representatives of the Syrian Democratic Council and the self-administration for north and east Syria, that is, the absence of representatives of 11,000 martyrs for the sake of security and stability in Syria, the region and the world. This exclusion can be called an unfair and excessive effort outside of human conscience. On the other hand, we find names that lack the slightest effect in bringing a breakthrough to the Syrian crisis. This prompted the components of the region (Arabs, Kurds, Syriacs, Assyrians, Armenians, Circassians, Turkmen and others) not to accept such an inequitable rapprochement which does not indicate to serious intentions to achieve stability and peace and unity of Syria and its people. As for the names that some people classify them representing our regions. In fact, these names are not known to people of the region and they have no responsibilities and no practical force to implement the outputs of the Commission in the event of its completion.

Mr. Guterres and Mr. Pederson:

 It was our hope that Mr. Pederson would consult and meet with all Syrian powers and parties and achieve consensus among them. Nevertheless, we continue to depend on the important role of the United Nations as well as Mr. Pederson and possibility of reconsidering these rapprochements, working for fairness; supporting the role of northern and eastern Syria, making efforts to serve Syria and the hopes of its people in stability, peace and democratic change .
