MOSCOW, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Syria’s opposition Popular Front for Change and Liberation will do its best to make the Geneva II Peace Conference successful, Syrian Deputy Prime Minister and the Front’s leader Qadri Jamil told a news conference on Monday.
“As I know the opposition has not formed its delegation yet. The opposition groups have failed to reach agreement till now. Some people are ready to take part in the Geneva II conference and the others are not ready yet. Certain forces refuse to take part in the forum within the National Coalition. The problem should be solved,” Jamil said.
However, he insisted all opponents to the Syrian government should be involved in the forum.
Moscow achieved big progress. It convinced “the regime to take part in the Geneva II forum. The opposition should revise its decision and announce about its involvement in the conference”, the Syrian deputy PM said.
Commenting on the upcoming meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Jamil said, “A decision was taken long ago.”
The Popular Front for Change and Liberation can be invited to the conference by U.N. / LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, but not by Lavrov, who has not such powers,” Jamil said.
In addition, he said the Front “will do its best to make the conference successful regardless if it takes part in it or not in order to help Syria overcome the humanitarian catastrophe”.
“We think about benefits for Syria. We want to take part in the Geneva II forum and we don’t rule out anyone from the dialogue,” the opposition leader said.
Qadri Jamil said his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov scheduled for January 20 would focus on preparations for the Geneva II Peace Conference.
“We want to express our view on the situation in Syria. We said earlier that it was impossible to settle the crisis by military means. So, we’re pleased with holding the Geneva II Conference,” he said, adding, “We want to create favorable conditions for making the conference successful”.
