The Syrian Coalition reiterated the need to resume negotiations in Geneva as soon as possible, renewing calls on the European Union to play a more active role in Syria.
The remarks were made by the Coalition’s political committee in a meeting earlier today. The meeting discussed the visit made by the Coalition to the European Union and to the Iraqi Kurdistan Region over the past few days. The meeting also reviewed the outcome of meetings with the EU High Representative Federica Mogherini and a number of EU officials.
The political committee stressed the need for ending the monopoly of the US and Russia over the Syrian file, calling for a greater European Union role in Syria as Europe is directly affected by terror and by the refugee crisis.
The meeting also discussed the visit made by a Syrian Coalition delegation to the Coalition’s offices in a France, Germany, Norway, and Croatia and proposed ways to develop relations with these countries and to reach out to Syrian communities there.
Furthermore, the meeting reviewed the visit by President of the Syrian Coalition Anas Alabdah to the Kurdistan Region during which he stressed the need for the Kurdish National Council-affiliated Peshmerga forces to join the fight against ISIS in Syria. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
