The political committee approved today the document of a political settlement which was agreed upon between the Syrian Coalition and the National Coordination Commission during a meeting held in the Brussels European Union headquarters last week.
The two sides have reached a road map to save Syria that includes “The Document of Basic Principles for a Political Settlement.” The document calls for the implementation of the Geneva Communique issued on June 1, 2012 starting with the formation of “a transitional governing body” with full judicial, executive and legislative powers, including all the powers of the president of the republic, the ministries and state bodies and institutions together with the army, intelligence and security branches and the police.
Marwa pointed out that “we can say that previous disagreements with the National Coordination Commission will be part of the past.”
The political committee meeting, which will continue for four days, will receives ambassadors of the Friends of Syria countries on its second day, while on the third day it will discuss the latest political developments on the ground, especially the Turkish military moves and the results of the Iranian nuclear deal. The fourth day will be dedicated to preparing the agenda of the General Assembly meeting which is going to be held in late July and during which a new presidential body will be elected.
