Sabra: Riyadh Conference a Step in the Right Direction
Member of the Syrian Coalition George Sabra said that the Riyadh conference, which will begin tomorrow in the Saudi capital, is a step in the right direction. Sabra expressed hope that the conference will lay the ground for a political solution to the crisis.
“We are hopeful the outcome of conference will meet the Syrian people’s aspirations, especially that Saudi Arabia has made enormous efforts in this regard," Sabra said. He stressed that the Syrian people depend on the substantial support Saudi Arabia provided since the beginning of the revolution.
“The conference provides the Syrian opposition with a chance to lay out a unified vision of the solution, especially in light of the Iranian occupation and the Russian aggression against Syria.”
Sabra called on participants to adhere to the Geneva I Communique “so that we can formulate a real political solution that meets the aspirations of the Syrian people and ensures the departure of Bashar al-Assad and his ruling elite.” (Source: Syrian Coalition + Al-Ekhbariya)
