Press release “Original in Arabic”
September 28, 2015
The political committee met with representatives of the rebel factions operating in Syria on September 27 to discuss the latest political developments. They emphasize rejection of any presence of Bashar al-Assad in the transitional period or in Syria’s future as well as of all attempts to re-market the Assad regime which caused the death of hundreds of thousands of Syrians, destroyed their cities and infrastructure, and forced millions out of their homes.
The two sides stated that the Russian military build-up in Syria to protect Bashar al-Assad from falling does not serve a political solution, stressing that Russia has never been a mediator in the conflict but a partner to the regime. They also stress this military presence will further complicate the situation in Syria and exacerbate the suffering, murder and the destruction in Syria. They agreed to hold a press conference to explain the common positions during the next few days.
Mercy for the fallen heroes, recovery for the wounded, and freedom for the detainees.
Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
