The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) expressed its deep appreciation for the unwavering support of the sisterly State of Qatar towards the Syrian people and their cause. This support was recently underscored in the speech delivered by Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani during the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly. In his address, Sheikh Tamim called for concerted efforts to achieve a comprehensive settlement in Syria through a political process leading to a political transition, as outlined in Security Council Resolution 2254. He also called for an end to the injustices faced by the Syrian people.
Haytham Rahmeh, the Secretary-General of the SOC, highlighted that Qatar’s Emir reaffirmed the steadfast stance of the sisterly State of Qatar, emphasizing its commitment to defending the rights of the Syrian people and their legitimate aspirations for freedom, dignity, and democracy.
Rahmeh emphasized that Qatar’s consistent positions come as no surprise, as Qatar has consistently supported the Syrian people, stood by them in times of hardship, advocated for their cause on the international stage, and firmly rejected any normalization with the oppressive Assad regime.
During his speech before the United Nations General Assembly, which was attended by over 150 heads of state and government, the Emir of Qatar stressed that it is unacceptable to view the grave injustices suffered by the brotherly Syrian people as an inevitable fate. He underscored the importance of a comprehensive settlement in Syria through a political process aligned with the Geneva Communique of 2021 and UN Security Council Resolution 2254. This approach should serve the aspirations of the Syrian people while preserving Syria’s unity, sovereignty, and independence.
The 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly is focused on discussions related to rebuilding confidence, revitalizing global solidarity, and accelerating progress towards the 2030 Agenda and its sustainable development goals, with the ultimate aim of achieving peace, prosperity, progress, and sustainability for all.
