MOSCOW, January 29 /TASS/. Moscow believes that terrorists from the Ahrar al-Sham and Jaish al-Islam groups should not participate in the Syria peace talks, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Friday.

"Our position of principle is that it is impossible to include terrorist organizations [in the talks]. We are sticking to it," Zakharova said.

"It is necessary to paraphrase the question of ‘what’s Russia’s attitude’ and readdress it to other members of the world community asking what’s their attitude to the inclusion of terrorist organizations [in peace talks]," the Russian diplomat went on to say.

"Terrorist organizations should not participate in the negotiations. If we talk about the fight against terrorism, it should be built on common principles without double standards and without dividing terrorists into ‘good’ and ‘bad’," Zakharova said.
