President Khoja calls upon the countries that met in Vienna, and the rest of the Friends of Syria, to stop the Russian aggression on Syria and the air strikes on civilians, hospitals, schools, and bakeries. He urges them to enable the Syrian people purge their country of the Russian-Iranian invaders, pointing out that the Russian military aggression on Syria came in ISIS’s favor instead of weakening it.
Khoja said that since the start of the Russian aggression on Syria, ISIS has made gains against Syrian rebels in Aleppo and Homs, with the help of Kurdish militias of the People’s Protection Units (YPG).
“Aleppo is now encircled from three sides, ISIS, regime forces and, and the YPG militias who have opened the way for Assad regime to complete the encircling of the city,” Khoja added.
“The Russian intervention came to aid these three sides and to tear down the FSA and the moderate rebels.”
“If the Friends of the Syrian people fails to stop the regime and Russia’s aerial bombardment on the rebel-held areas, they must provide the FSA with means they need to establish safe zones,” Khja stresses.
Regarding the Vienna meeting, which took place last week, Khoja said that the focal point in those meetings is to agree on Assad’s departure, as he is the primary cause the killings, displacement and emergence of extremism.
He expresses hope the upcoming Vienna meeting produce tangible results, lead to stopping the aerial bombardment of the Syrian people, and pave the way for a transitional process.
Khoja concluded his remarks stressing that engaging Iran in the Vienna talks is negative as Iran has been aiding Assad in the bombing and killing of civilians since the very beginning, adding that Iran is as dangerous as ISIS. (Source: Syrian Coalition + Anadolu)
