Head of the Syrian interim government Jawad Abu Hatab called on the international community to protect health and educational facilities as well as all other civilian infrastructure in liberated areas from the barbaric bombardment by the Assad regime and Russian forces. Abu Hatab stressed that this move is vital to enable the interim government to provide services to the civilian population in liberated areas.
In a two-day meeting with the Syrian Coalition’s political committee, Abu Hatab called on humanitarian organizations and neighboring countries to deal directly with the Syrian interim government institutions. He called for facilitating imports of raw materials, petroleum, agricultural products and livestock to liberated areas. He also called for facilitating exports of agricultural products in order to revamp the economy in liberated areas. Abu Hatab pointed out that this will help pave the way for refugees and displaced persons to return to their homes.
Abu Hatab gave an overview of the latest developments regarding the formation of the interim government and meetings Abu Hatab held with concerned bodies in liberated areas. The meeting with the political committee also discussed the interim government’s action plan.
