The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s political committee held its periodic meeting on Thursday to discuss the latest political and on the ground developments as well as organize the work of the SOC’s committees and departments.
SOC’s President Nasr Al-Hariri talked about the importance of developing and improving the work of the SOC’s committees and departments by clarifying their organizational structure, abiding by the annual executive plans, and achieving their goals.
Al-Hariri pointed out that there are a number of emerging issues for which new committees need to be formed, noting that these committees reflect the SOC’s follow-up of all sensitive, important issues.
Furthermore, Al-Hariri called on the SOC members to interact with the Syrian public opinion by highlighting actions and proposals, setting up events, and launching development and economic projects in the liberated areas.
Al-Hariri also called for the development of the SOC’s political vision and incorporating the latest political developments in the political and negotiating process as well as the latest UN resolutions on Syria.
Participants in the meeting discussed the health situation in Syria, both in the liberated and the regime-held areas. Al-Hariri indicated that the number of positive coronavirus cases rose to 22 as he emphasized that the Syrian Interim Government’s Ministry of Health continues to conduct tests to detect and isolate the infected persons.
Members of the political committee pointed out that the health situation in the regime-held areas is grave as they are under the risk of epidemic explosion. They said that the Assad regime does not care about the safety of citizens as it did not introduce any preventive measures to stem the spread of the coronavirus. They urged all Syrian citizens, especially those in the regime-held areas, to show utmost caution and abide by preventive measures.
