Member of the Syrian Coalition’s political committee Nora al-Ameer said that Russia is deceiving the international community by falsely claiming it supports a political solution in Syria. She added that the Russians pretend to engage positively with the United Nations efforts to reach a political solution in Syria while supporting the Assad regime in its ongoing brutal onslaught on Aleppo.
Al-Ameer stressed the need to stop the Assad regime’s attempts to encircle Aleppo where regime forces are attacking the Castello road, the last supply route into the rebel-held parts of the city.
The Assad regime, backed by Russia, is exploiting negotiations to pursue with a military solution on the pretext it is fighting terrorism, Al-Ameer said, adding that regime and Russian forces in fact target the Free Syrian Army and civil institutions with the primary aim of keeping Bashar al-Assad in power.
Al-Ameer stressed that the Syrian opposition is seeking to form a transitional governing body with full executive powers without Bashar al-Assad and his inner circle. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
