President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Salem Al-Meslet, held a virtual meeting with the British Special Envoy to Syria, Jonathan Hargreaves, and Elinor Lipman, and discussed with them the latest developments in the political process and the implementation of UN resolutions, especially the Geneva Communique of 2012 and UN Resolutions 2118 and 2254 that lead to a political transition in the country.
Al-Meslet thanked the British envoy whose his term in office will end in the coming days, and expressed his best wishes to Mrs. Lipman, who will assume his duties until a new envoy takes over.
Al-Meslet stressed the need to restore attention to Syria, revitalize the political process, and keep the Syrian file on the negotiating table due to its importance to the rest of the files, most importantly the issues of detainees and refugees.
Al-Meslet talked about the field conditions in Syria, and the progress of the Syrian Interim Government’s work in terms of improving services, calling for supporting projects in the liberated areas.
The two sides touched on recent developments and regional meetings, while Al-Meslet reaffirmed the SOC’s firm position on the need to achieve a comprehensive political transition in Syria in accordance with UN resolutions, which includes ridding Syria of the criminal Assad regime.
Al-Meslet also stressed the need to reactivate the work of the “core group” of friendly and sisterly countries that support the demands of the Syrian people in order to resolve the outstanding issues and push towards resolving the problems facing the Syrian people.
