In coordination between the Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) representative office in Washington and the Office of Syrian Communities Abroad, the SOC held a virtual meeting with heads of US-based Syrian organizations to discuss the latest field and political developments in Syria.
SOC’s President Nasr Al-Hariri talked about the fraudulent elections that the Assad regime held in its areas last week. The elections were met with widespread rejection from the SOC and many states as well as from the Syrian people.
Al-Hariri also talked about the SOC’s expansion of its activities in the liberated areas out of its keenness to strengthen its legitimacy among the Syrian people. He gave an overview on the SOC’s renewal of its national discourse and its quest to expel the Assad regime from the United Nations.
Moreover, Al-Hariri touched on the latest developments in the political process and the work of the Constitutional Committee, stressing that the Assad regime continues to procrastinate.
Coordinator of the SOC’s Office of Syrian Communities Abroad, Muhammad Yahya Maktabi, talked about the events and activities that the Office participated in in the liberated areas, such as the demonstrations that were held to expose the Assad regime’s sham elections.
Maktabi stressed that the Office is closely following the situation of Syrian refugees in Denmark and the unjust decisions made against hundreds of Syrian refugees there. He pointed to the Office’s continued pursuit of the goal of holding a general conference for Syrian communities around the world.
Hussam Al-Ayoubi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Killa Pack Group, talked about the importance of carrying on with reforming the SOC, including amendment of its internal laws and the duration of the presidential term in line with the new reality of the Syrian revolution.
Zaher Sahloul, President and Co-Founder of MedGlobal INOG, talked about the recent election of the Assad regime to the Executive Board of the World Health Organization and the need to work with international partners to confront this move. He stressed the importance of continuous communication between the SOC and Syrian organizations to work with the decision-makers in the United States to ensure more attention to Syria and include it on the US administration’s list of priorities. He also stressed the importance of follow-up of the points that were agreed upon and the exchange of views about them.
