GENEVA, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The opposition would not start inter-Syrian talks until it receives a written consent with the Geneva Communiqué from the government, representative of Syrian National Coalition Luai Safi stated on Friday.
“Otherwise, it would be a waste of time,” he said. “We need a confirmation of commitment to the Geneva Communiqué. This is the basis to start the dialog.” Safi noted that, if there is no confirmation, it makes no sense to start the negotiations.
“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.
