Vice-President of the Syrian Coalition Hisham Marwa welcomes the remarks made by the UN envoy to Syria Stefan de Mistura who said he is looking forward to meeting head of the Syrian Coalition’s Legal Committee Haitham al-Maleh. Maleh will hand de Mistura a letter from the Syrian Coalition.
Marwa stresses that the Syrian Coalition is keen to continue consultations with the United Nations to conduct serious discussions that include mechanism for the enforcement of the Geneva communique and roadmap for a political settlement. Marwa points out that the Syrian Coalition and the interim government are in the process of developing a detailed vision on how to address the post-Assad and the power vacuum that might ensue through the provision of security and essential services to the population and mechanisms to counter terrorism.
Marwa’s remarks come ahead of Maleh’s meeting with de Mistura later today in Geneva. Maleh was delegated by the Syrian Coalition’s General Assembly to submit a letter containing documents clarifying the Syrian Coalition’s position on political solution based on the Geneva communique issued on June 30, 2012. The letter also contains an invitation to de Mistura to a meeting with an expanded delegation from the Syrian Coalition next month. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
