This meeting allowed us to reaffirm our full support for the Syrian National Coalition and, in the run-up to the Geneva II conference, to reiterate our shared vision of a political transition addressing the Syrian people’s legitimate aspirations. The creation of a transitional government body with full executive powers was the central objective of the Geneva II conference.

At a time when the regime’s headlong pursuit of repression against the people continues to aggravate the humanitarian situation, this ministerial meeting signaled our desire to provide increased help to the Syrian National Coalition and the Syrian people, particularly in the liberated areas.
