Anas al-Abda, President of the Syrian National Coalition, held separate meetings with the Office of Regional Affairs of the Arab States, the Office of Relations with the European Union, and the Offices of Turkey and the Americas and discussed with them the strengthening of relations with the governments of those countries and the affairs of Syrian nationals residing in these countries.
Participants in the meetings discussed the plan of action for the next two months in accordance with the agreed strategy as well as the major humanitarian crisis resulting from the Assad regime and its allies’ brutal onslaught on the de-escalation zone in northwestern Syria.
Participants also discussed the enormous needs of the IDPs, as President al-Abda said that the Assad regime’s targeting of medical facilities is to blame for the mass displacement of civilians.
President al-Abda said: “We face the potential danger of a fresh wave of refugees similar to the one that took place in 2015. The IDPs are in urgent need for assistance before the onset of winter. There is also a pressing need for a ceasefire and a return to the political process in accordance with international resolutions, especially the Geneva Communique of 2012 and UN Security Council resolution 2254.”
President al-Abda briefed the coordinators on the plan of action of the new Syrian Interim Government which will give priority to civil administration and the provision of essential services to the civilian population in the liberated areas. He pointed to the importance of the SIG getting support from donors to start implementing its programs.
Moreover, President al-Abda stressed the need to increase communications with the sisterly and friendly states that support the cause of the Syrian people in order to strengthen relations and build a common vision on the political process in Syria.
President al-Abda pointed out that the Iranian policies does not pose a threat to Syria and its people only, but also to the majority of the countries of the region. He strongly condemned the attack that targeted the Saudi Aramco oil facilities several days ago. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
