Syrian Coalition Official: Russia & Iran are Partners in Crimes Against Syrians
An official in the Syrian Coalition stressed that Russia and Iran are not committed to international resolutions on Syria, adding that they are partners in all the crimes the Assad regime is committing against Syrian civilians.
Member of the Coalition’s political committee Okab Yahya said that Moscow is exploiting the inaction of the world community to unilaterally impose its agenda for solution in Syria.
Okab was speaking during a meeting that was co-organized by the Parties Committee and the Coalition’s representation office in the Turkish city of Mersin with Syrian political bodies. Around 40 people attended the meeting.
Member of the Coalition, Fadi Ibrahim, gave an overview of the Coalition's plans to reach out to the political opposition forces with the aim of working out an appropriate formula that includes the various Syrian activities in Turkey. The plans also include preparations for the holding of extensive consultative meetings paving the way for the holding of an expanded conference of the Syrian revolutionary and opposition forces.
The meeting also discussed the latest political developments and the challenges ahead. Tabled for discussions was also the eighth round of negotiations in Geneva and their outcome as well as the performance of the Syrian Negotiations Commission and its efforts to lay out unanimous positions and attitudes.
At the end of the meeting, participants agreed on the formation of a seven-member committee whose task will be to consult with the Coalition’s political committee about all the political and field developments. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
