The Syrian Coalition held the second consultation meeting with representatives of the Syrian rebel factions today in Istanbul to discuss plans for the formation of a joint military command and demands for reforming the Syrian Coalition. The conferees also discussed issuing a joint document to act as a basis for laying out a comprehensive vision for the future of Syria.
The participants emphasized the integrity of Syria’s territory and the unity of its people, and stressed that rebel fighters will keep fighting until the Assad regime is overthrown and all its allied sectarian militias are expelled from all Syria’s territory and all the displaced people return to their homes.
Moreover, they agree that the political and military opposition must build on the latest rebel gains and the deteriorating situation of regime forces, stressing the need to build trust among military and political parties and the transition from opposition mentality to the mentality of state-building to present a real alternative for the Assad regime.
President Khoja denied reports about another meeting for rebel factions in Amman, stressing that the Syrian Coalition is reaching out to all rebel factions to prepare plans for the next phase. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
