President of the Syrian Coalition Anas al-Abdah reaffirmed that the Alawite community is an essential component of Syria’s social fabric, stressing that the Alawite community and the Assad regime are not one and the same. Abdah said that the Assad regime has long used the Alawite community and other components of the Syrian society as tools to stay in power.
During a meeting with head of Syria’s Tomorrow Movement Fouad Humeira on Tuesday, Abdah stressed the need for the revolution to maintain its moral guidelines and stay away from violence or revenge.
Abdah expressed the Coalition’s readiness to cooperate with Syria’s Tomorrow Movement in all fields, especially in the file of detainees held by various armed groups in Syria. Abdah pointed out that the Coalition future efforts will be focused on boosting Syrian-Syrian dialogue and on reaching out to the whole spectrum of the Syrian opposition to ensure just representation of all components.
For his part, Humeira stressed the need to bring Syria’s Alawites on the side of the Syrian revolution in order to ease the concerns that the Assad regime has long instilled among members of the Alawite community. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
