President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition, Nasr Al-Hariri, participated in a workshop held by Human Rights movement ‘Citizens for Justice and Peace’ along with a group of Syrian political parties under the title “The Fourth Consultative Meeting of Syrian Political Blocs.”
Participants reviewed the latest on the ground and political developments, especially the work of the Constitutional Committee which convened on Monday. They also discussed reforming the Syrian opposition institutions. Al-Hariri emphasized that the SOC is working to develop its political vision as the participants agreed to hold further workshops in order to hold more detailed discussions in the days to come.
Al-Hariri pointed out that the SOC was originally tasked with representing the demands of the Syrian revolution, adding that as the revolution dragged on, the responsibilities and burdens increased. These include meeting the basic needs of millions of people in the liberated areas.
He stressed the importance of coping with these changes, noting that the SOC welcomes proposals serving its current plans to improve performance. “Proposals for reform and improving the performance must be comprehensive.”
Al-Hariri indicated that the SOC will appoint new representatives in the Arab and Western states, adding that it will rely on dissident diplomats to strengthen diplomatic relations and represent Syria in international institutions, including the United Nations. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
