The Syrian National Coalition’s Office of Strategic Consulting held a panel discussion under the title “The Iraqi Uprising: The Background and Expected Effects.”
Key speakers included strategic expert and former member of the Iraqi parliament, Omar Abdul Sattar, members of the Coalition’s political committee and the General Assembly.
Abdul Sattar talked about the latest developments in Iraq and their impact on the countries of the region, including Syria.
Abdul Sattar also talked about Iran’s crimes in Iraq and the rest of the countries of the region, stressing that pressure has been piling on Iran thanks to the popular uprisings in a number of Arab countries against Iran’s practices and crimes against the people of the region.
Abdul Sattar pointed out that there are several possible scenarios that could unfold in Iraqi, stressing that the Iraqi people aspire to get rid of the Iranian tutelage and establish an independent republic.
Moreover, Abdul Sattar said that Iran would ultimately lose, which would reflect positively on Syria and the struggle of its people for freedom and dignity.
For his part, Ahmed Ramadan, member of the political committee, said that the panel discussion aimed to discuss the escalating developments in the region, including Iraq and Lebanon. He said that the panel discussion also aimed to closely follow the course of events and build a strategic vision that will help bring security and stability to the region; ensure emancipation from Iranian hegemony; and establish a civil, democratic system that is based on justice and equality.
