GENEVA, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (NCSROF) Ahmad al-Jarba has left Geneva, a well-informed diplomatic source confirmed to Itar-Tass.
“Secretary General of the NCSROF Badr Jamous is entitled to hold negotiations on behalf of the Syrian opposition,” the source added.
On Thursday, at a press conference in Geneva, Ahmad al-Jarba said that he empowered a team of negotiators. He noted that they, in particular, may “stop them (the talks) anytime”.
On Friday, at 16:00 local time (15:00 GMT), a meeting between UN / LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi and the Syrian opposition is planned.
Commenting on the format of the Geneva talks, the diplomat said, “The first stage of the talks will last for a week. Then the delegations may return to Damascus and report the leadership on the results. Afterwards they return back.”
Answering a question if the opposition delegation can refuse to take part in the talks due to al-Jarba’s departure, Bogdanov said he did not rule out that any party “can stop the talks. This is on anyone’s conscience”.
