The Kurdish-backed Self-Administration of North and East Syria on Sunday called on the Syrian regime to accept a call for dialogue and consensus in response to comments Bashar al-Assad made last week.
In a statement on behalf of the administration, Abdul Hamid Al-Mehbash, co-chair of the Executive Council of the Administration, said the administration had “no objective to divide Syria.”
“The statements and accusations made against us that claim we seek to divide Syria are untrue and unrealistic,” Mehbash added.
Assad told Russian media on Friday that he rejected any form of autonomy, but admitted that the political situation in the country had changed.
Mehbash, meanwhile, claimed the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the self-administration have, in fact, “blocked the attempts to divide Syria.”
