National salvation party backs Syrian army, rejects transitional government

The National Salvation Party announced Monday its plan during its founding conference held in the 'al-Qaisar Palace' Hotel in Damascus in the presence of  representatives of the Chinese and Russian embassies plus several secretaries of national parties and members of Parliament.

The plan of the party is based on preserving the unity of the Syrian territories, supporting the Syrian Arab army in fighting terrorism and protecting the national unity, enhancing the principle of citizenship and holding a comprehensive national dialogue to make political, constitutional, administrative and judicial reforms, according to the Party's Secretary General Dr. Hosameddin Abo Khier, who gave a speech in the opening ceremony of the conference.

Dr. Abo Kheir was quoted on the official news agency (SANA) as saying that the party rejects the existence of the United Nations Disengagement Observer forces in Syria because this will be the start of a long-term mandate.

He called on the state institutes to arrest the persons, who take up arms and impersonate security and military personnel, and to hold them accountable.

"The party is composed of members from the whole spectrum of Syrian people and it will work on building bridges of trust and amity among the whole spectrum to be a basis for the comprehensive national reconciliation," Dr. Abo Kheir said.

He underlined that the political action and the national reconciliation are the only way to end the crisis after defeating terrorist organizations in the country.

Dr. Abo Kheir refused the proposal of the transitional government in Syria, describing it as a 'disguised coup against legitimacy'. He asserted that the National Salvation party supports the formation of national unity government that includes all Syrian spectrum.

The National Salvation party licensed last June by the Parties Affairs Committee in Interior Ministry believes in peaceful change and rejects all forms of violence and foreign intervention in Syria's internal affairs.

Since 2011, a foreign-backed terror war has been waged against Syria targeting its army, people, civilization and infrastructures in accordance with the US-Zionist plot that aims to fragment the region and to have hegemony over its wealth.

About 360.000 foreign terrorists from 93 countries came to fight against the Syrians from April 2011 till January 2016, according to the German Firil Center for Studies. While media reports have confirmed that Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, the U.S., France, Britain and Israel support – by all means-terrorist organizations operating in Syria.
