The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) Studies and Documentation Office held its second meeting with the SETA Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research in the Turkish capital, Ankara, to resume the work on the “Syria Project” related to the administration and governance of liberated areas in northern Syria.
The meeting brought together SOC’s President Nasr Al-Hariri, secretary of the political committee, Coordinator of the Studies and Documentation Office, Riyad Al-Hassan, member of the political committee, Badr Jamous, and Head of the SOC’s office in Ankara Ahmed Bakkoura.
The Turkish side included professors Murat Yeşiltaş and Murat Aslan, as well as researchers Emrah Halil and Batu Coşkun.
The Syria Project aims to develop a comprehensive plan to meet the needs of the population of the liberated areas so as to alleviate their suffering by providing them with safety and basic services.
The two sides agreed to form six joint technical working groups that will be tasked with discussing the issues of security, administration, development, combating extremism and social and economic safety.
The committees are set to finalize the project in the coming few weeks. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
