The Syrian Negotiations Commission’s delegation, led by Badr Jamous, held discussions with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York. They focused on the political process and the implementation mechanisms for the 2012 Geneva Communique and UN Resolution 2254.
During the meeting at the United Nations headquarters, President Jamous emphasized the urgent need for a just solution for the Syrian people, full adherence to UN Resolution 2254, and an end to the regime’s delays in seeking a political resolution.
The delegation stressed the importance of resolving the issue of detainees and forcibly disappeared individuals in the regime’s prisons, emphasizing support for legal and humanitarian efforts to secure their release.
Additionally, they discussed with the Secretary-General and the Special Envoy to Syria, Geir Pedersen, the risk of limiting the political process solely to the Constitutional Committee, neglecting other aspects. They called for the opening of all tracks, particularly the transitional government track, and reiterated their stance on holding the Constitutional Committee in Geneva.
The delegation also called for increased support for refugees, emphasizing the importance of their voluntary return within a political solution that ensures a safe and neutral environment. They highlighted the significance of equitable aid distribution and preventing the Assad regime from exploiting humanitarian assistance for political purposes, thereby pressuring the Syrian people into making further concessions.
Furthermore, the delegation conveyed the voices and messages of the Syrian people from various cities to the Secretary-General, underscoring the need for the United Nations to consider the ongoing anti-regime movement in Suwayda.
