The Syrian Coalition emphasized that its new leadership is keenly seeking to reach out to all forces and components of the Syrian revolution, including the political, civil, and military forces, women and youth who constitute the social base of the revolution.
Secretary-General of the Syrian Coalition Nazir Hakim explained that the Coalition has drawn up a clear strategy aimed at restoring the leading, real role of the institutions of the revolution through effective engagement with new components and forces.
Speaking during a meeting with representatives of the Waad Party at the headquarters of the Syrian Coalition in Istanbul on Saturday, Hakim stressed the need for the Coalition “to set a foothold in Syria as necessary step to effectively participate in the rebuilding and re-stabilization of Syria.”
Hakim reaffirmed the Coalition’s support for the opposition’s High Negotiations Committee (HNC), stressing also the commitment of the Coalition and the HNC to the goals of the revolution and to a political solution leading to the establishment of a transitional governing body without Bashar al-Assad and his clique.
“The Coalition is keen to engage and cooperate with all forces of the revolution through several mechanisms being discussed by the political committee on a daily basis,” Hakim added.
For their part, representatives of the Waad Party expressed support for the plans of action developed by the Coalition, adding that the Waad Party is an independent national party whose decisions are made without interference from any other party. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
