MOSCOW, January 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Any ambiguity with the arrival in Geneva by the Syrian opposition creates obstacles to launching the Geneva II Peace Conference, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Wednesday.
“The Syrian government confirmed that it had participated in the forum without preconditions,” Lukashevich said.
“In essence, the opposition’s ambiguity prevents from launching the Geneva II conference, which is designed to put an end to the bloodshed and the sufferings of the peaceful population in Syria, and search for ways to settle the crisis in the country,” the diplomat said.
