MOSCOW, March 7. /TASS/. The provision of UN Security Council Resolution 2254 on the broad representation of the Syrian opposition at another round of the Geneva talks that ended on March 3 has not been complied with, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday following meeting between Russian Presidential Envoy for the Middle East and North Africa and Deputy Foreign Minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, and chairman of the Syrian opposition’s "Moscow group", Qadri Jamil.
Bogdanov and Jamil discussed the outcomes of the consultations held in Switzerland. "During the conversation, the two sides discussed the results of another round of the UN-backed intra-Syrian talks held in Geneva from February 23 to March 3 that involved the delegations of the Syrian government and some groups of the Syrian political oppositions. The talks were also joined by representatives of the armed groups, which accepted the terms of the ceasefire in Syria," the ministry said. "They voiced regret over failure to comply with the demand on the broad representation of the Syrian opposition during preparations for the event enshrined in UN Security Council Resolution 2254."
The "Moscow group" took part in the talks in Geneva along with the Cairo and Riyadh opposition groups. The Astana group and the Hmeymim group, as well as the Kurds, were not represented at the meeting.
