GENEVA, January 26, 5:11 /ITAR-TASS/. Humanitarian theme will dominate the Geneva II international conference on Syria on Sunday. The delegations of the Syrian government and opposition will continue their discussions, which the authorities’ foes are describing as preliminary consultations. They are not hiding that President Bashar al-Assad’s resignation remains their chief objective.
However, the negotiating teams had gathered at one table for the first time the day before. And though all the contacts took place via the United Nations & LAS envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, the negotiators managed to raise a number of themes, including relief supplies to the city of Homs. It is still unknown how discussions are going to pass on Sunday. But one thing is definitely clear: the negotiations are still under way.
