The delegation was received by the co-chair of the foreign affairs department, Abdulkarim Omar. During the meeting, there were exchanges on the current political process, the extension of the UN Security Council resolution on humanitarian aid through the Bab al-Hawa border crossing, the threat of the "Islamic State", the situation in the reception and internment camps, the continued water shortage by Turkey and other Turkish violations. Abdulkarim Omar stated that the people of northern and eastern Syria are disappointed that the Yarubiyah (ku. Til Koçer) border crossing on the Iraq-Syria border remains closed.
