Secretary-General of the Syrian Coalition, Nazir al-Hakim, stressed that forces of the revolution and its institutions all agree on the demand of the departure of Bashar al-Assad and his clique at the start of the transitional period. He stressed that any party that tries to support or reproduce the Assad regime will be partner in the spread of repressive, extremist ideologies that are based on the curtailment of freedom and the continuation of killings and murder.
Hakim was speaking during a meeting with President of the Union of the Free Syrian Writers, Tawfiq al-Obeid, on Wednesday at the headquarters of the Coalition’s General Secretariat in Istanbul.
Hakim was presented with an honorary shield from the Union of the Free Syrian Writers expressing their appreciation for the moral support the Coalition extends to all institutions of the revolution.
Hakim said that the crimes being committed by the Assad regime and its allied foreign militias cannot be obliterated from history or books, adding that the countries, institutions and people who stood by Assad “cannot be forgotten nor can they erase the ignominy they brought upon themselves.”
Hakim pointed out that the Coalition and the Syrian Interim Government (SIG) will always stand by all the free institutions that are helping Syrians regain their free decisions and end the Assad regime’s control of all aspects of life in Syria. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
