Dissident Figure: Turkey-Led Ceasefire Not Trustworthy

Head of the National Coordination Committee for Democratic Change in Syria Mahmoud Marei warned that the ceasefire agreement reached with the Turkey-led militant groups cannot be trusted.

“The militants who have accepted the truce act at Turkey’s order and if the country changes its views on the crisis in Syria in future, they will also do so,” Marei told FNA on Wednesday.

“The dissidents inside Syria know that pinning hope on change in the terrorists’ position on the crisis in the country is fruitless and the only solution is fighting against terrorism until the full annihilation of all terrorists,” he added.

Marei underlined that the National Coordination Committee for Democratic Change is ready to participate in the ceasefire talks provided that it will adopt an independent approach and find a national solution to the crisis in Syria.

His remarks came after the Iranian foreign ministry called on the Turkish officials to confront repeated violation of the ceasefire in Syria by the terrorist groups.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi underlined earlier this month that as a partner in Moscow tripartite meeting, Iran emphasizes serious implementation of the agreements, expecting the Turkish officials as another party to the agreements to refuse taking stances which are contrary to the existing realities and commitments of the country.

Noting that the ongoing ceasefire in Syria has been repeatedly violated by the armed opposition groups, he said that more than 45 cases of violation of ceasefire by the armed groups have been reported in a single day.

“Regarding the realities, if they (the Turks) are after establishment of lasting ceasefire and preparation of grounds for success of political dialogue to end the Syrian crisis, as the party guaranteeing commitment of the armed groups in Moscow agreement, they should take necessary arrangements and confront the repeated cases of violation of ceasefire by the (armed) groups, while avoiding taking the stances which do not go with realities and raising allegations against other parties,” Qassemi said.
