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.
Speaking about the invitation to visit Moscow he noted that “at first Russia has to recognize the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces as a legal representative of the Syrian people as other countries have done.’
