Secretary-General of the Syrian Coalition Nazir Alhakim reiterated the Coalition’s support for the political process in Geneva. He stressed that the negotiations must lead to the formation of a transitional governing body with full of executive powers in which Assad and his clique do not have any role in line with the Geneva Communique of 2012 and the relevant UN Security Council resolutions.
Alhakim made his remarks during a meeting with the First Secretary of the Australian Embassy in Ankara, Tamsen Sanderson. The meeting discussed the latest field and political developments in Syria and stressed the importance of the development of bilateral relations.
Alhakim emphasized that the Assad regime is seeking to stall the political process in Geneva as it still refuses to implement international resolutions and insists on pursuing a military solution to the crisis. He added that the Assad regime’s policies are the reason for prolonging the crisis in Syria and the emergence of terrorist organizations.
Alhakim pointed out that the support offered by the Australian government to the Syrian people should be channeled through the Syrian Coalition and its institutions, namely the Syrian Interim Government (SIG) and the Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU). He noted that the Assad regime continues to seize aid provided by the UN agencies to feed its war machine distributing it to its militants and the Iranian-backed militias.
