MOSCOW, November 8 (Itar-Tass) - Syria’s National Coalition has refused to take part in the talks in Moscow, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.

“Russia initiated the talks in Moscow. It should not create any impression that a certain parallel trend has been formed within preparations for the Geneva II Peace Conference,” the diplomat said.

“These days Russia’s initiative has been discussed in Geneva with the opposition groups,” he said.

“Unfortunately, Russia’s initiative is being blocked. Certain leaders of the National Coalition consider it counterproductive and are not ready to take part in the Geneva II conference,” Lukashevich said, adding, “The Foreign Ministry leadership is convinced that the initiative will be useful to inter-connect positions by Syrian parties, which have to agree in Geneva.”

“This is a schematic gesture, which predetermines discussions in Geneva. So far we’ve gotten positive responses from different opposition groups,” he said.
