President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition, Nasr Al-Hariri, met with Canada’s envoy to Syria, Gregory Galligan, and discussed with him the latest developments in Syria.
Participants in meeting also included SOC’s Vice-president Abdel Hakim Bashar and Coordinator of the SOC’s Department of Foreign Relations, Abdulahad Asteipho.
Al-Hariri thanked the Canadian government for its provision of humanitarian support to those in need in Syria and its hosting of Syrian refugees.
Al-Hariri talked about the latest developments on the ground, especially the Assad regime and its backers’ crimes, the last of which was the deliberate Russian attack on the Syrian National Army in the Duwaila area in Idlib province.
The two sides also discussed the political process and the results of the work of the Constitutional Committee. Al-Hariri pointed out that the work of the Constitutional Committee has not yet produced any tangible results despite the efforts being made by the UN envoy to Syria, Geir Pedersen.
Al-Hariri stressed the need for greater pressure on the Assad regime and its backers to force them to sit at the negotiating table and implement UN Security Council resolutions on Syria, especially UN Resolution 2254.
For his part, the Canadian diplomat discussed the possible scenarios and the SOC’s position on them. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
