Five days have passed since the Geneva 2 conference was held, and negotiations between the regime’s delegation and part of the coalition did not yield any positive results in the issues of democratic transition or in the sub-humanitarian issues, despite their importance. The opening speeches of the foreign ministers of the international, regional and Arab group expressed the interests of these countries, their different positions on the crisis and the way to solve it, while the speech of Dr. Nabil Fahmy, the Arab Minister of Foreign Affairs of Egypt, was distinguished by a clear position on the goal of the conference in achieving the demands and legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people and not representing the internal opposition forces.
The exclusion of the independent Syrian voice represented by the National Coordination Body, which was the first to support Geneva 1 and the first to propose the idea of an international conference on Syria and to present a clear vision on the political solution confirms what the National Coordination Body has repeatedly announced that the Geneva 2 conference came as a result of more international and regional balance than An outcome of the Syrian national balances. This exclusion and the limitation of representation to a partial representation of the opposition constitutes a serious defect and implies a clear violation of the text of the Geneva Declaration, which allows the opposition forces to form a balanced, reasonable and acceptable delegation of these forces.
· The Commission has made unremitting efforts to form a balanced delegation through a consultative meeting and to provide it with a joint negotiating program, but international and regional pressures prevented it from achieving it. Despite all this, the National Coordination Body did not change its vision of the importance of the conference as it is the appropriate framework for a political solution through international, regional and national consensus, and it wishes it success despite its awareness of the lack of data for success. The refusal of the Executive Office to participate in the coalition delegation was not a reversal of its view of the necessity and importance of the conference to implement the Geneva 1 Declaration and develop a roadmap for a political solution and a peaceful transfer of power, but rather an adherence to achieving political consensus on the implementation of the Geneva 1 statement with all its provisions and the climate necessary for the success of the conference.
Our keenness on the success of the Geneva conference prompts us to pursue efforts to prepare for a consultative meeting in Cairo as soon as possible and to contact all democratic opposition forces at home and abroad that adhere to comprehensive radical democratic change and a political solution within the framework of the Geneva conference, in order to agree on a joint program and form a delegation A unified representative of the opposition forces and guarantees the participation of the National Coordination Body and its allies, the Supreme Kurdish Authority and well-known independent personalities in the next stage of the Geneva Conference.
