MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem is due to hold negotiations in Moscow on November 26, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
Russia has been conducting active consultations with various Syrian opposition groups in an effort to “contribute to building confidence and creating the atmosphere which will switch this situation from military confrontation to a political dialogue.”
Lukashevich said there is a proposal to convene a meeting in Moscow involving both the Syrian government representatives and the opposition. “But in fact, it is not easy to fulfill this idea taking into consideration the conmposition of the opposition,” he said.
“We believe the opposition should be represented by a broad spectrum of all the groups including foreign and domestic groups,” Lukashevich said. “Probably, some impulses will emerge after the Moscow talks with Syrian foreign minister Muallem,” he added.
Fighting between the Syrian government troops and militants has left over 191,000 people dead and displaced millions since its start in 2011, according to the United Nations.
