President of the Syrian Coalition, Ahmad al Jarba, met with Egyptian Foreign Minister, Nabil Fahmi, early today to discuss the Syrian crisis in light of the latest deteriorating humanitarian situation resulting from the Assad regime’s unabated shelling on residential areas across Syria; particularly, in Aleppo. They also discussed the situation in besieged areas as well as the results of the first round of negotiations in Geneva II.
President al Jarba discussed with Foreign Minister Fahmi the outcome of his latest visits and meetings, stressing the Coalition’s interest in continued coordination with Cairo, as Egypt is a pivotal state that supported the Syrian uprising since its beginning. President al Jarba reaffirmed that the Coalition is working to achieve democracy and establish a modern state preserving Syria’ unity, stability, and territorial integrity.
Foreign Minister Fahmi expressed his appreciation of efforts made to launch the political process in Geneva. He underlined this process was the only way to find a new mechanism that will help reach a political settlement that meets the aspirations of the Syrian people for freedom and democracy.
