Abdul Hakim Bashar, Vice President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), conducted a political symposium at the Kawergosk camp for Syrian refugees in Erbil province, Kurdistan Region of Iraq. During the session, he discussed the political landscape in Syria, emphasizing the ongoing resistance of the Assad regime against any political solution that could alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people and restore security and stability to the country.
Bashar underscored the economic challenges in regime-controlled areas, suggesting the potential failure of state institutions. He pointed out the regime’s inability to achieve security stability and economic security, positing that these shortcomings might lead its allies to explore alternatives due to the regime becoming a burdensome liability.
Addressing the strategic relationship between the Kurdish National Council and the SOC, Bashar highlighted collaborative efforts to address violations and abuses in the Afrin region and other liberated areas.
Bashar elaborated on the plans of the SOC and the Presidency of the Kurdish National Council to devise effective mechanisms for the return of residents to Afrin and Ras al-Ayn. He also outlined plans to halt and address violations while addressing the disruptive role played by the PKK against Kurds and other components in Syria.
