The General Assembly assigned the Presidential Body, in consultation with the Syrian Coalition’s office in Cairo, to follow-up on the participation of the Syrian Coalition in the upcoming Arab summit.
The General Assembly also reviewed the letter addressed to the Syrian Coalition by the Russian Foreign Ministry, and decided not to participate in the upcoming Moscow II meeting, scheduled to be held in early April. Members of the General Assembly pointed to a development in the Russian position which showed more recognition of the Syrian Coalition than it showed prior to the Moscow I meeting.
The Syrian Coalition’s General Assembly began its 20th regular meeting in Istanbul yesterday, where they discussed the field situation in Syria, the implications of the regime’s latest chemical attack on Sarmin, and the new international initiatives put forward on Syria, including the upcoming Cairo and Moscow meetings scheduled to be held next month.
The conferees also reviewed reports submitted by the presidential body, the Interim Ministry of Defense and the FSA’s General Staff and the recommendations of the political committee. Among the topics that are going to be discussed during the next two days of the meeting are the presidential body’s recent foreign tours, the general situation in northeastern Syria and the challenges facing the revolution as it enters its fifth year.
President Khoja said that the Stafan de Mistura’s “freeze” plan has failed, and that now he is preparing a new plan to reignite the political process aimed at reaching a political solution to the conflict. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
