President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Salem Al-Meslet, sent a letter of thanks to the foreign ministers of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Arab Republic of Egypt and the State of Qatar for their firm positions towards the cause of the Syrian people, their refusal to normalize relations with the Assad regime, and rejecting any attempt to return it to the Arab League.
Al-Meslet stressed the important and pivotal role of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Qatar in supporting the Syrian people’s struggle for freedom, dignity and justice. He also stressed the importance of the political and diplomatic role of these countries that is capable of pushing a political solution in Syria forward, and contributing to prompting the international and Arab community towards implementing Security Council resolutions, especially resolutions 2118 and 2254.
He stressed the importance of the Arab role in order to confront the Iranian military and political influence, and the malicious project through which the Iranian regime is trying to tear the societal fabric of Syria and the region.
Moreover, Al-Meslet stressed the importance of the continued isolation of the Assad regime and the refusal to engage in its legitimization, rehabilitation or acceptance in the Arab League. He made it clear that the Assad regime lacks legitimacy and does not represent Syria or its people, adding that accepting the regime means enabling Iran to place its representative on Syria’s seat in the Arab League.
He added that the political transition in Syria is the only way to put an end to the suffering of the Syrian people and ensure the unity and independence of the Syrian territory.
Al-Meslet reaffirmed the SOC’s keenness to continue coordination and fraternal cooperation with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Qatar, and the permanent desire to strengthen those relations.
Al-Meslet expressed the SOC’s readiness to work with international, international and Arab efforts to push the political process forward in order to take decisions that serve the cause of the Syrian people, Arab and regional issues.
