President of the Syrian National Coalition, Anas Al-Abda, received the Director General for Syria in the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Ambassador Selcuk Unal, and discussed with him the latest political and on the ground developments in Syria as well as the situation of Syrian refugees and residents in Turkey.

The Coalition’s Vice-presidents, the Secretary General, and the Coordinator of the Department of Foreign Relations also took part in the meeting. President Al-Abda stressed the importance of cooperation and coordination with the Turkish side to beat off the major challenges lying ahead, especially with regards to the Constitutional Committee and the establishment of a safe zone allowing the return of displaced persons.

The meeting included talk about the latest preparations for the work of the Constitutional Committee which will convene later this month. President Al-Abda stressed that the international community has a major role to play, especially with regard to obliging the Assad regime to comply with the rules of procedure and seriously engage in the work of the Constitutional Committee.

President Al-Abda pointed to the importance of enabling the Syrian Interim Government to improve the situation in the liberated areas, especially with regard to the improvement of security and stability as well as the holding of free, fair elections in these areas.

President Al-Abda praised the results of Operation Peace Spring as he underscored the importance of liberating the area from terrorist organizations as key to the establishment of a safe zone and the return of its people. He pointed out that the Coalition’s vision for that region is based on enabling the Syrian Interim Government to engage the local people in the management of the region.

Secretary-General of the Syrian National Olympic Committee, Ahmed Al-Ali, and Head of the Team Games Shakir Hamidi, met with the Coordinator in the Turkish Ministry of Youth and Sports, Mehmet Sadik Yildirim in the Turkish capital of Ankara.

The meeting was held in coordination with the Syrian National Coalition. The two sides discussed the possibility of coordination with regard to Syrian sports in general and sports activities in the liberated areas in particular. They agreed to cooperate to develop the Syrian sports and support the talented athletes from all ages.

Member of the Coalition’s political committee and Director of the Coalition’s Office of Sports Unions, Abdul Majid Barakat, said that there are serious efforts to bring together all those involved in sports affairs in the liberated areas and the host countries.

Barakat pointed out that the Coalition aims to make the sports file a Syrian national file away from quotas. He said: "Success in this file will turn it into a pressure file on the Assad regime as the battle is not only political and armed one, but a battle having multiple fields. The sports field is no less important than other fields.”

Barakat said that the Committee is working to launch a football league in the liberated areas with the participation of all clubs, adding that work is underway to find ways of cooperation with Turkey and some friendly countries to support this league and secure recognition for it.

He pointed out that the Syrian Olympic Committee launched an official website to publish the news related to the work of the Committee and cover the sports activities in the liberated areas and abroad. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
