DAMASCUS,(ST)_The People’s Assembly (PA) has issued a statement on the political plan recently outlined by President Bashar Al-Assad to resolve the crisis in Syria.
According to the Sunday-statement, the MPs uphold the plan which is based on dialogue among all Syrian components and preserves Syria’s sovereignty.
“the Plan is the best way to sort the crisis out,” the statement reads, stressing that it meets the Syrian people’s aspirations in terms of building a political pluralism and democratic Syria that guarantees Syrian peoples’ rights.
The PA vows to work tirelessly with the newly-formed national reconciliation committee to make the plan successful and to reactive dialogue among all Syrian citizens and political blocs.
“This work seeks to foil the aggression against Syria and to draw its political future,” the statement said.
The PA sees as ‘a national responsibility’ that all Syrian national and political forces besides all activists and civil society must ‘positively’ be involved in the national dialogue to formulate Syria’s future far away from personal differences.
The statement noted Syria’s great history which dates back to thousands of years during which the Syrian people confronted the French and Ottoman colonialists to surpass crises and achieve victory over the homeland’s enemies.
It appealed to regional states, especially that claim keenness on Syrian people’s interest, to abide by moral values and international law’s principles to stop arming, funding, and harboring terrorists with a view to making the Syrian solution plan successful.
The PA highly appreciated the friendly states’ attitudes that support political solutions and reject all forms on foreign meddling in Syria’s internal affairs.
“Drawing Syria’s political future that is based on political pluralism, equality among Syrian citizens, combating terrorism and developing state’s management is a national responsibility that requires all Syrian citizens’ cooperation to reinforce their homeland to remain strong,” the statement said.
It underscored that Syria has a leading national role in defending Arab causes .
“ Those who reject participation in national dialogue under pretexts that have nothing to do with national and political work shoulder responsibility for the continuity of blood shedding in Syria through their- direct or indirect- involvement in lasting the crisis and destroying the State’s infrastructures,” the PA statement concluded.
On January, 6th, 2013, President Al-Assad delivered a speech in which he outlined a political plan to solve the crisis.
The plan has been widely supported by Syrian national parties, unions and friendly states.
Meantime, Omar Oussi, an Independent MP, declared in a press conference held on Sunday in Damascus, the importance of the political plan launched by the President to solve the ongoing crisis and to achieve democracy.
According to Ousi, the draft program of the National reconciliation committee, recently established by PA, includes the following:
- Lectures and Symposiums
- Asking all members either in the committee or in the PA to communicate with all spectrums of people and executive authorities
- Discussing the kidnapped issue
- Following up the arrested issue.
- Coordination with all reconciliation committees in all other provinces.
- Strong participation in the political process.
- Setting up several field visits to all provinces.
- Preparing strong participation to create the suitable climate to achieve all steps successfully.
- Improving Citizens’ living conditions.
- Concentration on social solution which is the most important in the framework of brotherhood.
He concluded: "we, the Parliament National Reconciliation committee, have done our best to make this political program a success; it is time for all people with different religions and factions to participate and share by ending the ongoing crisis and encouraging dialogue."
