The Syrian Coalition's Statement on the Human Rights Council Resolution

Media Statement
Syrian Coalition
Istanbul, Turkey
June 14, 2013

The Syrian Coalition welcomes the resolution issued by the Human Rights Council in today's session.  The Syrian Coalition also embraces countries that voted in favor of this resolution as it proves that the overwhelming majority of the international community is committed to dealing with Assad’s record of gross human rights violations against Syrians calling for freedom and dignity.

The Syrian Coalition reaffirms the commitments made in the statement issued on June 5, 2013, and renews its call for the Commission of Inquiry on Syria to fully carry out its mission in accordance with the stipulations of today's resolution. This resolution mandates that the Commission enters liberated zones in order to conduct its inquiries. The Syrian Coalition and its forces pledge that they will provide all necessary technical and logistical aid to the Commission's team.

The Syrian Coalition considers today's resolution an important step towards stripping the Assad regime of its legitimacy and boosting international recognition of the Syrian Coalition as the sole legitimate representative of the Syrian people.  Civilians are waiting in anticipation for this resolution to put a stop to the bloodshed and realize its aspirations.

We ask for Mercy for our martyrs, health for our wounded, and freedom for our detainees.

Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
