The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s political committee on Wednesday held its periodic meeting to discuss the latest political and on the ground developments as well as the plan of action of the SOC’s departments and committees.
Members of the committee discussed developing a new vision that corresponds with the latest political developments and international decisions related to the situation Syria.
The SOC’s committees presented their work reports, giving an overview on the results and recommendations set by each committee. SOC’s President Nasr al-Hariri talked about the issue of detainees in the Assad regime’s prisons and the risks they will be facing should the coronavirus finds its way to inside these prisons. He warned against the consequences of attempts by the Assad regime to exploit the spread of the pandemic in Syria as a cover-up for its crimes against detainees.
Al-Hariri also talked in detail about the international diplomatic campaign the SOC has recently launched to ward off military action targeting the liberated areas in northwestern Syria and to consolidate the existing Turkish-Russian ceasefire agreement.
“The best thing we can offer to our people is improving our political performance, the performance of the Syrian Interim Government, and the services sectors operating in the liberated areas,” Al-Hariri said. He stressed the need to expedite the creation of an alternative to the Assad regime and present it to the Syrian society and the international community which is now convinced that the Assad regime is the worst regime the world has ever known.
He also stressed the independence of the national decision and that it must be based on the supreme national interests, rejecting all forms of interference in internal issues.
Al-Hariri also highlighted the results of the international consultations he had with a number of officials as well as the meetings held by the SOC’s offices and committees with components of the Syrian people to discuss the vital issues affecting the Syrian people inside and outside the country.
