President of the Syrian Coalition Riad Seif stressed that the Coalition’s policy is based on the principle of non-alignment and non-interference in the internal affairs of all countries, calling for the resolution of disputes through national dialogue by all parties in an atmosphere of fraternity and mutual understanding.
With regards to reports claiming that the Coalition supports the referendum in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, Seif said that the Coalition did not take any position in this regard as it is an internal Iraqi issue and that the Coalition respects the will of the Iraqi people.
