Nasr al-Hariri, President of the Syrian High Negotiation Commission strictly condemned the illegal decision of the Assad regime on Recognition of the independence of the occupied territories of Georgia – Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region / South Ossetia.
In addition, he clearly confirmed the unwavering support to Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within the internationally recognized borders.
“A few days ago, within the frames of the General Secretariat meeting of the Syrian Opposition Forces’ Negotiations Committee, we held a meeting with the Ambassador of Georgia in Saudi Arabia, where we talked about basic principles of international law and “red lines” which cannot be crossed. These principles are: unity, territorial integrity of Syria and unity of the Syrian people. We want these principles to be respected both related to us and to other countries. Therefore, we support Georgia’s territorial integrity. We strictly condemn the “recognition” of the occupied territories of Georgia – Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region / South Ossetia by the Assad regime, – Nasr al-Hariri said.
The High Negotiation Commission unites Syrian opposition forces. The Committee is involved in the UN Geneva negotiations, supported by the EU and the international community.
