(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The opposition Syrian National Coalition (SNC) appreciated and welcomed US President Barack Obama's announcement in his speech on Wednesday at West Point that he will increase support for the Syrian opposition which offers the "best alternative to terrorists and the illegitimate Assad regime." Expressing appreciation to the American support to the Syrian people in its struggle against the Assad regime, Najib Ghadbian, the SNC Special Representative to the US said: "This additional support highlights the partnership between the United States and the Syrian people in ending the humanitarian disaster and putting Syria on the path to genuine democratic transition." He noted that this announcement also follows a recent 15-3 vote by the Senate Armed Services Committee to authorize a train and equip mission in support of the moderate Free Syrian Army (FSA). "The Syrian people and the opposition forces stand committed to work with their friends and to expand strategic cooperation in countering the terrorism enabled by the Assad regime in Syria," he stressed. He concurred with President Obama who alluded that the conflict in Syria "does impact American interests. The extremist threat is increasing in Syria as the Assad regime continues to serve as a magnet for terror." "There is a convergence of interests between the United States and the future Syria in supporting the Syrian people's aspirations for freedom and the ongoing efforts by the Free Syrian Army to fight al Qaeda and Iranian backed terrorists," he noted. He recalled that high level meetings took place earlier this month in Washington D.C. between senior administration officials and President of the Coalition Ahmad al-Jarba and a delegation of senior opposition officials.
