President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Salem Al-Meslet, joined an event held in Afrin on Monday to discuss the latest field and political developments in Syria. The event was attended by notable figures of the Afrin region and a number of tribal sheikhs.
Al-Meslet was accompanied by SOC’s office coordinator in liberated areas, Najib Rahmoun, and SOC members Atef Zureik, Muhammad Sheikh Rashid, and Muhammad Khalaf. During the event, they addressed attendees from the Afrin region, representatives of the Yazidi community, tribal sheikhs, union and syndicate representatives, local councils, and representatives of the Syrian National Army.
Al-Meslet emphasized the need to repeat such meetings to overcome the challenges faced by Syrians and to unite the different sects to build a new Syria. He expressed his condolences to the Syrian people, particularly the Kurdish brothers who were victims of a heinous crime in Jindires. Al-Meslet called for imposing the most severe punishment against the criminals and pointed out that the criminal regime was the first to create sectarianism and discord among the Syrian people.
On the political level, Al-Meslet rejected normalization with the criminal regime and questioned how the regime, which murders people and floods the world with drugs, could provide security and stability for Syria. He urged everyone to work together in confronting the regime, and highlighted that the solution should come from Syrians themselves.
Sheikh Muhammad Kalo of the Yazidi sect also spoke at the event about the coexistence between different sects on Syrian soil since ancient times and the need to build a new Syria.
Attendees at the event reaffirmed their commitment to the Syrian revolution’s principles and goals until the regime’s overthrow. They also stressed their refusal to normalize with the regime, called for its accountability, and emphasized the implementation of UN resolutions, particularly Resolution 2254.
