MOSCOW, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and leader of the Syrian Popular Front for Change and Liberation, Vice-Premier Qadri Jamil met on Monday for talks on preparations for the Geneva II Peace Conference with the focus on forming a representative Syrian opposition delegation.
“We talked about the upcoming Geneva II Conference. We agreed that the conference must be held. It can’t be postponed because every day of delay leads to hundreds of victims,” Jamil told Itar-Tass.
Now it is extremely important to create favorable conditions for holding the conference. The priority is to form a delegation, which will represent all forces opposing to the government. “A good opposition delegation is a balanced delegation, which represents all groups. The monopoly won’t benefit the Geneva II Conference,” the Syrian vice-premier said.
The Popular Front “will continue working to prepare the Geneva II Conference and represent all forces of the opposition”, he added.
