THE HAGUE, November 23, 19:56 /ITAR-TASS/. Syria’s opposition will send a united delegation to the talks in Geneva, Suheir Attasi, a vice president of the National Coalition of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces said Saturday in an interview with Itar-Tass.
The National Coalition will bring under its banners all the oppositionist forces willing to take part in the Geneva-2 conference, Attasi said, adding that the Coalition was prepared to conduct dialogue with all the opposition groupings.
When the correspondent asked her whether or not the Coalition was putting forward any preconditions for participation in the conference, she said that the Administration of Bashar al-Assad should ensure unimpeded access for convoys with humanitarian aid, including foodstuffs and medicines, to all the areas of the country controlled by government troops.
Attasi said she believed it was entirely unacceptable to use the humanitarian crisis in the country as an instrument for putting pressure on the opposition in a bid to motivate towards taking part in the Geneva talks.
