The Syrian National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces (SMDK) on Tuesday urged the Egyptian authorities to resolve the visa implementation issue regarding Syrians.

Fayez Sarah, a member of the SMDK, said the recent Egyptian visa implementation on Syrians really suprised them and added, "We live in Egypt with our families. Families will be seperated. It is astonishing they reqest a visa despite recognizing the Syrian opposition legally."

"At least families shouldn't be seperated in the holy month of Ramadan," Sarah said.
