Abdurezzak Aslan el-Laz, an ex-Syrian army colonel who joined the opponents last month, has said about Kurdish Syrian crisis, "Opponents will not let creation of a Kurdish controlled region in Syria."
Laz shared what he went through and the latest developments in his country with AA and said that Al-Assad's forces slaughter with guns which were bought with public's money and he stated that when looking at the crisis from outside, the situation is not clearly understandable.
Laz underlined that "media covered up most of the incidents" and continued, "I could not stand seeing the death of women and children so I left the regime and came next to Syrian people. Decisions which are being taken internationally just stayed over the papers."
Laz noted that he left his position in the Syrian prime ministry and moved onto the Free Syrian Army on July 10.
Replying to the questions of AA about the logistic and military mobility at the towns near Turkish border, Laz clarified, "There is a pressure on Turkish government however, Turkey is a strong country and will not rise to the bait. It is only Turkey's business to decide to send soldiers and equipment to the Syrian border."
He expressed that 85 percent of Syrian people support the reforms and said, "International decisions taken over the papers only work for extending the duration of Al-Assad's regime. Regime increases the amount of cruelty and the pressure more every other day. Syrian people will keep fighting for their freedom until Al-Assad leaves."
He also stated that they will preserve the political and social rights of all ethnic and religious groups living in Syria and continued clarifying, "We as opponents are not approving creation of a Kurdish state on the soil of Syria. Like others, of course we will be keeping the political and social rights of Kurdish people however, we will not let division of Syria."
