During the meeting, Al-Meslet highlighted the significance of students as Syria’s future and an essential asset to the country. He also emphasized the SOC’s commitment to youth and the education sector in liberated areas.
Al-Meslet updated the students on the latest developments in the political process and reaffirmed the SOC’s dedication to achieving the Syrian people’s aspirations for freedom, dignity, and democracy, based on the UN resolutions concerning Syria, particularly the Geneva Communique of 2012 and UN Resolutions 2118 and 2254.
