The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) Office of the Syrian Communities Abroad held a virtual meeting with members of the Syrian community in Denmark. Participants discussed the latest on the ground and political developments as well as the conditions of the Syrian refugees in Denmark.
The two parties discussed the situation in Idlib, the need to shore up the ceasefire agreement, and preparations for the protection of civilians from attacks and violations by the Assad regime and its backers.
The two sides talked about the need to file lawsuits in Denmark and other European countries against the war crimes being committed by the Assad regime and the importance of prosecuting perpetrators of war crimes in Syria as well as ensuring they are held accountable.
Members of the SOC gave an explanation of the work of the Presidency and the political committee, especially the Department of Foreign Relations, the legal committee, and the Caesar Act Follow-up Team. They stressed that the efforts must be focused on supporting the Syrian people in Syria and abroad; strengthening the SOC’s foreign relations; and investing the common interests to serve the Syrian revolution’s goals for freedom and dignity.
The two sides also discussed the latest developments in the negotiating process, the upcoming round of the talks by the Constitutional Committee, and the Assad regime’s attempts to obstruct the political solution while insisting on pursuing a military solution. The two sides stressed that the solution must be through the full implementation of UN resolution 2254 and the discussion of all provisions of the resolution until the formation of a transitional governing body.
Coordinator of the department, Mohamed Yahya Maktabi, stressed the importance of the role of the Syrian communities in the diaspora in supporting the aspirations of the Syrian people and the Syrian revolution. He also stressed their important role in the host countries at the popular and official levels, especially in the formation of advocacy groups that positively affect decision-makers to serve our just cause.
