The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) political committee held a regular meeting, headed by President Salem Al-Meslet, to discuss the latest field and political developments as well as the regional and international developments and their impact on Syria. In attendance were also Vice-Presidents and the Secretary-General.
The committee discussed the measures and efforts that the SOC is taking to delegitimize the Assad regime at the United Nations, especially after it voted against a UN General Assembly resolution condemning the Russian aggression against Ukraine. The committee stressed that the Assad regime’s holding of Syria’s seat at the United Nations threatens international peace.
Al-Meslet briefed the committee on the SOC’s recent visit to the Egyptian capital, Cairo, and the meeting with the Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit and representatives of the Syrian community in Egypt. He also spoke about the results of the meetings with a delegations from the US State Department and the French Foreign Ministry.
Al-Meslet stressed that the United States and its allies were late in realizing the serious threats resulting from their policy in Syria and from giving Russia a free hand in the country. He said that this policy encouraged Putin to cherish more ambitions until they reached the point of invading Ukraine and threatening the whole of Europe.
Al-Meslet pointed out that the SOC’s recent meetings with international missions indicate that there is a comprehensive review of old policies, and the development of new plans in line with the current developments.
The committee reviewed the tour made by a SOC’s delegation to the areas of Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ayn east of the Euphrates. It stressed the importance of continued support for the people of the two areas and improving the living conditions in these areas.
The committee also discussed the work reports of the SOC’s offices, committees and departments, as well as discussed mechanisms for developing the work and future plans.
