President of the Syrian Coalition Anas Abdah called on friends of the Syrian people to adopt a new and unified strategy to protect Syrian civilians from the war crimes being committed by the Assad regime and Russia across Syria, particularly in Aleppo.
During a meeting with Deputy Danish Foreign Minister Charlotte Slente on Tuesday, Abdah stressed the need to establish a no-fly zone in Syria to serve as a safe haven for civilians fleeing the Assad regime and Russian airstrikes. He called on Denmark and friends of the Syrian people in Europe to play an active role in this regard.
Abdah briefed the Danish delegation on the situation in Syria and the intensifying onslaught by the Assad regime and Russian forces on Aleppo. He noted that Assad regime is pursuing a strategy that is aimed at forcing civilians out of their homes and forcing them to agree to so-called local truces and evacuation deals to bring about a demographic change in the besieged areas.
Abdah noted that the actions of the Assad regime have been responsible for the disruption of the political process which was initiated in 2014. The latest and most shameful example of these actions is the ongoing ferocious onslaught on Aleppo.
Abda stressed the need to support the projects and programs being implemented by the Syrian interim government in the liberated areas, especially in the areas of education, health and basic services.
For her part, Slente reiterated her country’s continued support for the Syrian Coalition and the Syrian people to help them reach a real political transition in line with the Geneva Communique of 2012 and the relevant UN Security Council resolutions. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Office)
