Syrian opposition seeks transitional govt body

The committee added that the solution will be implemented via establishing a transitional governing body with complete jurisdictions

Published: Updated:

The Syrian opposition has prepared itself to participate at a meeting of foreign ministers on Syria which will be held Wednesday in London after the High Negotiations Committee finished its meetings which lasted for two days in the Saudi capital.

The committee agreed on the executive framework for a political solution and confirmed that the latter is the first strategic option for the Syrian opposition.

According to the committee’s statement, the political solution must harmonize with international decisions and the Geneva I conference decisions.

The committee added that the solution will be implemented via establishing a transitional governing body with complete executive jurisdictions in which Bashar al-Assad has no presence or role.

It also said that it’s working with the United Nations to establish executive framework for international decisions to mitigate the suffering of the Syrian people.

The committee accused the Assad regime of using internationally prohibited weapons such as the naplam, phosphorus and cluster bombs, in addition to using chemical weapons. It also accused it of attempting to change the demographics of the country through forced displacement.

The committee called on the UN to bear its responsibility towards the crimes which the Assad regime is committing – crimes which it doesn’t seem will end soon amid the series of ongoing battles as dozens of countries directly manage or support them or participate in them.
