GENEVA, June 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov will meet representatives of the moderate Syrian opposition in Geneva on Wednesday upon completion of the Russia-U.S.-U.N. meeting on preparations for an international conference on Syria, a Russian diplomat told Itar-Tass.
Bogdanov is planning to confer with members of the Syrian Democratic Platform and the National Coordination Committee for Democratic Change, the diplomat said.
The question who should represent the Syrian opposition at the conference called Geneva-2 is one of the priority ones. Russia’s position is that it should involve opposition groups, which act on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012.
Earlier, the National Coordination Committee said it would take part in the Geneva-2 forum. The National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Force (it is backed by Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia) refused to arrive in Geneva.
