The Syrian Parties and Movements Working Group within the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) convened a meeting with the Syrian Renaissance and Welfare Movement at the Syrian Interim Government office in Al-Raie, Aleppo countryside. This gathering is part of the group’s initiative to strengthen relations with Syrian political entities aligning with SOC’s vision and goals.
The meeting brought together the group’s coordinator Muhammad Ali Issa and members Abdullah Kaddo and Muhammad Farouk Tayfour, along with representatives from the Renaissance and Welfare Movement including Mazen Abdel Razzaq, Muhammad Zakour, Ahmed Al Ali, and Abdul Karim Jumaa. It underscored the paramount importance of national partnership across Syrian society’s diverse sects and affiliations. They emphasized Syria’s unity and territorial integrity, and the adherence to the will of the people as common goals.
Participants highlighted the significance of such meetings in fostering partnerships and alliances among Syrian political entities, aiming for integration and identifying common ground. Notably, the establishment of the Association of Political Parties in liberated areas, comprising seven parties, was recognized as a significant step towards this objective.
Emphasizing support for any comprehensive national project aligned with the aspirations of the Syrian people, attendees emphasized the need to halt the decline in international attention towards the Syrian crisis. They called for advancing the revolution’s social base through effective governance, improving living conditions, job creation, and fostering a secure and stable environment conducive to investment. Additionally, they stressed the importance of solidarity among Syria’s political components of various sects.
Lastly, attendees recommended convening an expanded meeting or workshop involving SOC and various Syrian parties to serve as a platform for Syrian national parties. Such an initiative would present a comprehensive vision for the political process and the future of Syria within the framework of a pluralistic, democratic system.
