A delegation from the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) headed by President Salem Al-Meslet will visit the Arab League in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, next Sunday, during which it will meet with Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit.
The delegation will comprise SOC’s Vice-president for foreign relations Abdulahad Astepho, Secretary-General Haitham Rahma, and member of the political committee Badr Jamous.
The three-day visit will discuss ways to activate the Arab role in the political process in order to bring about political transition in Syria in accordance with the Geneva Communique of 2012 and the relevant UN resolutions, especially resolutions 2118 and 2254.
Al-Meslet reaffirmed the SOC’s keenness to establish the best relations with the sisterly Arab states in view of their influential and effective role in Syria. Before traveling to Cairo, Al-Meslet said: “We look forward to an active Arab role in Syria and for the Arab League to shoulder its responsibilities in Syria.”
Al-Meslet stressed the need to strengthen this important role in order to create momentum and revitalize the political process and reach a political solution that ends the suffering of the Syrian people.
Al-Meslet also stressed that normalization of ties with the Assad regime is unacceptable, especially since the reasons that led to the expulsion of the Assad regime from the Arab League still exist.
