THE HAGUE, November 23, 21:03 /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (NCSROF) Ahmad Asi Al-Jarba may arrive in Moscow in December, the movement’s vice-president, Suhair al-Atassi, told Itar-Tass.
NCSROF has gotten an invitation to visit Russia, but “a delegation of the Syrian ruling regime was in Moscow”, al-Atassi said, adding that the talks could not be fruitful.
“Thus, we’ve decided to arrive in Moscow later. Ahmad Al-Jabra will lead our delegation,” she said.
Commenting on the date of the trip, al-Atassi said, “As the schedule permits. It may be next month.”
Al-Atassi said she hoped that Russia “will be able to influence the regime to deliver humanitarian aid to suffering Syrians and to release prisoners, particularly women and children”.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Al-Jabra could arrive in Moscow.
“We expressed readiness to invite different opposition groups to Moscow, including the National Coalition. We received the response to the invitation. The Coalition said it accepted the invitation,” Lavrov said.
The Russian minister named the Coalition’s accord to arrive in Moscow for consultations as “positive”.
