President Mustafa stressed that Russia’s support for and its participation in the military operations stalled the political process. Russia also encouraged the Assad regime to violate agreements and refuse to engage in the political process.
President Mustafa explained that the meeting also discussed the issues of east of the Euphrates and the arsons that ravaged tens of thousands of hectares of vital crops, causing huge losses to farmers in that region.

The Committee reviewed reports on the situation on the ground and the dire conditions being experienced by some 400,000 displaced people because of the brutal bombardment. It underscored the importance of exertion of more efforts to provide relief and medical assistance for the displaced people, especially children, women and the sick.
