The Stabilization Support Unit, in collaboration with the Local Councils Unit, organized a symposium in the Turkish city of Gaziantep with the aim of connecting Syrian business communities to the political process within the framework of the “Involving the local community in the political process” initiative.
A delegation from the Syrian Negotiations Commission, comprising President Badr Jamous and members Jamal Suleiman, Anas Abdah, Hanadi Abu Arab, Ahmed Al-Asrawi, and Tariq Al-Kurdi, participated in the symposium. They were joined by lawyers, legal experts, activists, and representatives from civil society organizations, as well as individuals involved in political affairs.
The discussions centered on the work of the Negotiations Commission in light of the evolving political landscape both internationally and within Syria. They examined the challenges and opportunities related to the faltering political process and assessed the impact of pressing regional and international issues on the Syrian crisis and the quest for a political solution.
During the meeting, Jamous underscored the crucial role of youth, students, activists, civil society organizations, and refugees in the political process. He emphasized the importance of their efforts in maintaining the visibility of the Syrian issue on local, regional, and international stages and encouraged them to play a more impactful role in shaping Syria’s future.
Jamous also noted that the gathering with the Free Lawyers Association offered a valuable opportunity to discuss the need for enhanced understanding and cooperation on legal matters linked to the Syrian crisis. It also serves as a platform for addressing issues related to justice and accountability, including discussions on how to achieve justice and ensure accountability.
