The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) has delivered an official letter to France, requesting an emergency session of the Security Council regarding the regime’s military escalation in northwestern Syria.
Hadi Al-Bahra, President of the SOC, handed an official letter to the French special envoy to Syria, Ambassador Brigitte Curmi, addressed to the French Foreign Minister. In the letter, he asked France to use its influence to convene a session of the United Nations Security Council to take necessary decisions and measures to halt the Assad regime’s military escalation in Idlib and the Aleppo countryside, as one of its permanent member states.
Al-Bahra was accompanied by Vice-Presidents Abdel Majeed Barakat and Dima Moussa, the Coordinator of the Department of Foreign Relations, Abdulahad Astepho, and member of the political committee, Zuhair Muhammad. The SOC’s representative in France, Noureddine Al-Labbad, was also present.
During their meeting, the two sides discussed several crucial issues in Syria, with a particular focus on the regime’s military escalation in Idlib province and the western countryside of Aleppo, as well as the situation of Syrian refugees in Lebanon and around the world.
This official visit took place as a SOC delegation traveled to Paris, where they will hold several meetings with officials from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Their aim is to discuss the latest developments regarding the Assad regime and its supporters’ ongoing bombing campaign in northwestern Syria, which has been mainly targeting civilians, hospitals, and schools.
