The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) political committee held a regular meeting under the chairmanship of President Salem Al-Meslet to discuss the field and humanitarian reality in the liberated areas as well as the latest developments in the political process. The discussions focused on the need to confront the Iranian presence in Syria.
In attendance were President of the Syrian Negotiations Commission Anas Abdah and Co-chair of the Constitutional Committee Hadi Al-Bahra.
Al-Meslet stressed the need to adopt a unified Arab position towards the Iranian expansionism and its dangers to Syria, neighboring countries and beyond. He made it clear that this unified position can only begin with supporting the Syrian people’s rightful demands, most importantly achieving a political transition and toppling the Assad regime, the puppet of the Iranian mullahs’ regime. He stressed the importance of realizing that the relationship between the two regimes is an organic one and that any bet on breaking off this relationship will be lost.
Member of the political committee and coordinator of the Al-Jazira and Euphrates Committee, Abdul Basit Abdul Latif, presented a detailed report on the workshop that the Committee held in the city of Gaziantep last week on the goals and dangers of the Iranian presence in eastern Syria.
The meeting included a discussion of the practical measures that need to be taken to confront the Iranian sectarian militias in Syria and the importance of focusing on the Arab role in this confrontation.
For his part, Abdah spoke about the Commission’s preparations to elect a new leadership as he stressed the importance of maintaining the cohesion of the Commission.
Meanwhile, al-Bahra gave an overview on the ongoing preparations for the eighth session of the Constitutional Committee due to be held at the end of this month. He stressed the importance of seeking to achieve a breakthrough in this session by agreeing on the fundamental provisions of the constitution. He also underscored the importance of activating all tracks of UN Resolution 2254, even though the Assad regime continues to put obstacles in the way of achieving any progress in the political solution.
Members of the political committee reviewed a report prepared by the Military Liaison Committee on the field situation and the violations that the Assad regime forces and the PYD terrorist militia are committing against civilians.
