The Syrian Coalition’s political committee on Wednesday began its meetings in the Turkish city of Gaziantep. The committee will hold meetings with the Syrian Interim Government and representatives of the local councils, associations and bodies, and civil society organizations.
A delegation headed by President Abdurrahman Mustafa on Tuesday concluded a visit to the liberated areas in eastern and western rural Aleppo and the Afrin region. The visit was aimed at discussing stabilization efforts and ways to activate the civil administration through the Syrian Interim Government and local councils.
Secretary of the political committee, Riad al-Hassan, said that the meetings in Gaziantep would focus on discussing the latest field and political developments. Tabled for discussions will also be the recent changes in northern Syria following the implementation of the Idlib agreement as well as ways to reactivate civil institutions and provide better services to the civilian population.
“The agreement has forced the Assad regime to stop all aerial attacks on the region,” Hassan said, adding that the agreement “has created new conditions that we are trying to invest in the restoration of civilian life and stability for the benefit of civilians.”
Hassan added that the Coalition along with the Syrian Interim Government and local councils are seeking to bring about major changes in the judiciary and the police. He noted that work is underway to make significant progress in the National Army project, stressing that these steps will improve the dire humanitarian conditions in the region and alleviate the suffering of civilians.
Hassan pointed out that the meetings will also include an explanation of the developments of the constitutional committee which held its first meeting in the Saudi capital Riyadh last week. The meetings will also discuss the outcome of the first meeting of representatives of the Syrian opposition, expressing hope that the work of the constitutional committee will begin under the auspices of the United Nations next month as per the UN envoy’s latest briefing to the UN Security Council.
