The Syrian National Coalition’s Secretary General, Abdelbaset Abdullatif, met with people from the provinces of Deir Ezzor and Hasaka in eastern Syria and discussed with them the latest field and political developments in the region and the Coalition’s vision for the management of the region.
The meeting was also attended by the Vice-President of the Syrian Tribal Council, Sheikh Amer Al-Bashir, and Ibrahim Pasha Al-Milli, a dignitary from the Ras Al-Ayn town in rural Raqqa.
Participants in the meeting put forward their visions for the safe zone and Operation Peace Spring as they called for providing security and stability for the people and for the Syrian Interim Government (SIG) to start its work in the liberated areas.
They also pointed to the importance of SIG’s Ministry of Local Administration to form local councils representing the people of the region, forming a police force, and the provision of essential services such as health and education.
Moreover, the participants stressed the need for SIG’s institutions and the leadership of the Syrian National Army to prevent any abuses and violations.
Abdullatif said that the Coalition is working with SIG to control security and provide stability in the areas which have been liberated as part of Operation Peace Spring.
He outlined the Coalition’s vision for the region, which is based on allowing the local population to manage their areas by themselves. He pointed out that SIG has recently helped establish a local council in the town of Tel Abyad and is currently working on forming similar councils in the newly liberated areas.
