GENEVA, November 25, 19:10 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s proposal to invite representatives of the National Coalition for Syrian Opposition and Revolutionary Forces remains in force, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said.
“We’re ready to accept representatives of all opposition groups in Moscow in order to discuss issues in a free atmosphere without any concrete agenda,” Gatilov said.
“There is no intention to put forth a proposal, which runs counter the convocation of the peace conference. This does not mean that this is a parallel track. This is a platform to allow different opposition groups and the Syrian government to meet and talk,” the Russian diplomat said.
While in Geneva Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov took part in the Russia-U.S.-U.N. meeting to prepare the forum due to take place in Geneva on January 22, 2014.
