Secretary-General of the Syrian Coalition Abdul Ilah Fahd stressed that achieving full political transition in Syria is the only solution to end the suffering of the Syrian people and resolve the crisis that affects the region and beyond.
Any political solution in Syria must be based on the Geneva Communique of 2012 and the UN Security Council resolution 2254 which both stress the need to achieve a political transition and meet the aspirations of the Syrian people to build a state of freedom and dignity, Fahd said.
“We are committed to a political solution in accordance with international resolutions on Syria,” Fahd said. “Any attempts by whichever party to impose solution with the use of force will be doomed to fail.”
A just and viable solution is the one that will be accepted by all Syrian people and that is based on relevant UN resolutions, in particular resolutions 2118 and 2254, Fahd added.
Fahd pointed out that the Assad regime and Iran are trying to blackmail the international community by using military force to impose certain terms during the negotiation process.
Regime forces and the Iranian-backed militias attacked many areas across Syria during the Astana meeting, Fahd said, urging Russia and the United Nations to take these breaches into account.
