BEIRUT, January 06, 14:00 /ITAR-TASS/. The National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces will have the final say on its participation in an international peace conference on Syria dubbed as Geneva II on Tuesday, January 7, a member of the coalition, Fayez Sarah, told Al Arabiya Channel on Monday in Istanbul, which was hosting the coalition’s meeting.

“This will be a positive decision,” he said.

Sarah showed to the coalition’s governing body a list of Syrian officials, “who are not involved in crimes of the ruling regime” and could form a transitional government for Syria together with opposition leaders. This government should be created as a result of the conference in Geneva and would rule the country until the presidential election.

The National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces seeks to get guarantees from the West that President Bashar al-Assad “will not play any role in the transitional period and Syria’s future.”

However, the Syrian leader has made no statements demonstrating his intention to leave the political arena, what the coalition backed by the West, Turkey and the Arab monarchies insist on. On the contrary, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad said in late December: “Nobody could prevent Bashar al-Assad from becoming a candidate in the 2014 presidential race.
