President Khoja warns that Assad’s survival in power means the continuation of terrorism, stressing that Assad’s intelligence agencies are the main producer of terrorism. “Assad’s survival will surely lead to the emergence of new extremist groups, both Sunni and Shiite.”
Khoja stresses the need to establish safe areas in northern and southern Syria as the best solution to defend civilians from the Assad regime’s barrel bombs and chemical weapons. Safe areas will also ease the establishment of civil administration which will in turn contribute to the fight against terrorism.
“Safe areas means stability and will enable refugees to return to their homes and will facilitate the delivery of humanitarian assistance to these areas,” Khoja added. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
