The Syrian National Coalition’s Secretary-General, Abdelbaset Abdullatif, held a meeting with the management and staff of the Coalition’s offices. He discussed with them the results of the meetings the Coalition members have recently held with military and civilian institutions as well as activists, civilians and IDPs in rural Aleppo.
Abdullatif called for strengthening communication with the actors in the liberated areas and listening to their needs and the challenges facing them. He also called for working on meeting these needs through the Coalition’s executive arms, namely the Syrian Interim Government (SIG) and the Assistance Coordination Unit.
Abdullatif stressed that the priority for the time being should be to support SIG’s efforts to administer the liberated areas; improve the services; and support the civil activities of unions and associations and benefit from their expertise.
Moreover, Abdullatif pointed to the need to focus on the issue of education and unify the efforts in this regard; communicate with the UNESCO to launch unified programs for the school dropouts; and secure recognition of degrees issued by SIG’s Ministry of Education so as to allow the dropouts to complete their education and qualify them to join the labor market.
Abdullatif stressed the importance of developing the administrative work, noting that this will have a positive impact on all aspects of work in the institutions of the Syrian revolution and the liberated areas. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
