Turkey - SMART

The vice-president of the High Negotiation Commission of the al-Riyadh 2 conference, Khaled al-Mahamid, calls to reopen the Nasib border passage between Syria and Jordan under the supervision of Russian forces.    

Al-Mahamid said in a statement that he "personally" supports the reopening of governmental facilities in Syria. Al-Mahamid called to reopen the Nasib border passage under Russian supervision to prevent Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia from entering Southern Syria. Al-Mahamid pointed out that he is referring to governmental facilities not loyalist forces' facilities.

In September 2017, the Free Syrian Army received a part of the profits of the Nasib border passage from the Jordanian government in exchange for reopening the passage. Jordan complained about losing more than one billion US dollars after the closing of the passage.

On April 1, 2015, the opposition factions gained control of the Nasib border passage after clashes with the loyalist forces. Later, several robbing incidents at the crossing led the people of Daraa to protests, forcing Jordan to close their side of the passage.

Al-Mahamid said that he supports destroying the Islamic State and the al-Nusra Front (known now as the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham), returning internally displaced persons to their homes, and rehabilitating infrastructure. "This will form the beginning of the political solution of Resolution 2254," according to al-Mahamid.

Al-Mahamid confirmed that the military support for all opposition factions in Southern Syria is "totally suspended," while the FSA and civil community organizations received 55,000 food packages from the United Arab Emirates.

In July 2017, the United States stopped supporting the Syrian opposition factions after negotiations with Russia and Jordan. The negotiations were followed by a de-escalation agreement in Southern Syria.
