The delegation of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) to the Arab League highlighted the tragic conditions in northwestern Syria, stressing the need to step up Arab support, especially in the areas of healthcare and education.
The SOC’s delegation stressed the need to revitalize the Arab role in the political process in order to achieve a political transition in Syria in accordance with the Geneva Communique of 2012 and the relevant UN resolutions, especially resolutions 2118 and 2254.
The delegation began an official visit to the Arab League in Cairo on Sunday, during which it met with Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit and Assistant Secretary-General Hossam Zaki. They discussed the need to maintain the isolation of the Assad regime and refuse to legitimize it or engage in rehabilitation of it. They also discussed ways to revitalize the political process and hand over Syria’s seat to the SOC as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.
The delegation comprised the SOC’s Vice-president for Foreign Relations Abdulhad Astephi, Secretary General Haitham Rahma, and member of the Political Committee Badr Jamous.
