Dr. Hijab applauds growing international awareness of the dangers of keeping Bashar in the transitional phaseDate Posted: 23 September 2017
A delegation of the High Negotiating Committee (HNC), chaired by Dr Riad Hijab, General Coordinator of the HNC, met with Assistant Secretary of State David Satterfield on Friday 22 September, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting, in New York. The two parties reviewed the most important and latest developments concerning Syria on the political and field levels.
Dr Hijab praised the recent US official statements, regarding the impossibility of keeping Bashar al-Assad in the transitional period, praising the growing international awareness of the dangers of maintaining the causes of the crisis without eradicating it, especially after the proven involvement of Assad using chemical weapons and other internationally prohibited weapons against the defenseless Syrian people.
Dr Hijab clarified that the HNC is moving to adopt a comprehensive strategy for Assad and his clique's proved involvement in committing crimes against the Syrians, for the cause of justice and to ensure that they do not escape punishment.
