The official website of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) announced that both Sihanok Dibo and Ali al-Asi met Bogdanov. They discussed prospects of launching the political process based on UN Resolution 2254 and “Working to end the Syrian tragedy and finding a sustainable solution that emanates from an intra-Syrian dialogue,” according to SDC.
