BEIRUT, December 29 (Itar-Tass) — The leader of Syria’s irreconcilable opposition represented by the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces expressed his readiness for talks with Russia in a neutral country and with participation of UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.
“The main precondition for any political deal is resignation of President Bashar al-Assad,” Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib told Al Jazeera independent broadcaster on Friday.
He advised Russia to stop support for the Syrian leader and his regime. At the same time al-Khatib noted that al-Assad uses Russian arms against rebels.
