HNC Reiterates it Won’t Accept Giving a Role for Assad in Transitional Period
The opposition’s High Negotiations Committee (HNC) reiterated it would not accept giving any role for Bashar Assad to play during the transitional period.
“HNC cannot accept any presence for Bashar al-Assad in the transitional period, HNC spokesman Salem Meslet said, adding that the HNC “will not act as eyewitnesses of the crime nor will it seek to bless the survival of the criminal.”
“The Syrian people will keep resisting and fighting. The Syrian revolution will continue until the Syrian people regain freedom and dignity away from Assad,” Meslet added.
“To be politically realistic requires the elimination of the root cause of the rise of terrorist organizations, not accepting the one who has absolute control on these groups.”
Meslet stressed that the vision that the HNC has develop for solution in Syria is “sufficiently realistic.” He pointed out that the "the failure of the international community to implement international resolutions on Syria will not affect the HNC’s vision for solution.”
As this failure and inaction continue, the United Nations bears full responsibility for the war crimes and crimes against humanity that are taking place in Syria, Meslet said. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department + Baladi News)
