President of the Syrian Coalition Abdurrahman Mustafa and members of the political committee held a video conference with ministers of the Syrian Interim Government (SIG), heads of local councils in Idlib and Hama provinces, and representatives of the revolutionary movement in northern Syria.
Participants discussed the latest political and field developments as well as ways to implement and abide by the Idlib agreement and bolster civil administration in all towns and villages across northern Syria.
President Mustafa said that the revival of the revolutionary movement in recent weeks have clearly showed that “the spirit of the revolution is still alive.” He also said that this movement and the people’s demands “represent and guide us in all the decisions and contacts we make.” He added: “The Syrian Coalition will not give up the principles of the revolution, the goals of freedom and dignity, and demands for the realization of the aspirations of the Syrian people.”
The implementation of the Idlib agreement will allow the Syrian Coalition to be closer to the revolution’s popular base through the opening of offices in all regions across Syria’s north, President Mustafa said. He pointed out that the Coalition intends to consult with revolutionary bodies representing all segments of the Syrian society in order to reach a unified vision of a solution in Syria and consolidate civil administration in the country’s north.
Moreover, President Mustafa noted that the agreement on Idlib demonstrated how the option of killing and displacement of civilians that is being pursued by the Assad regime and its allies has failed dismally. He added that the agreement “will reflect positively on the political process as it will pave the way for a political solution in accordance with the Geneva Communique of 2012 and UN Security Council resolution 2254. He also said that the Syrian Interim Government is currently making efforts to secure support for civil administration in northern Syria.
“The safety and well-being of civilians in the region are our top priority,” President Mustafa stressed, adding: “we are constantly communicating with the Turkish guarantor to this end, especially with regards to the violations being committed by the Assad regime and the sporadic bombings of northern Syria.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
