GENEVA, January 26, 16:43 /ITAR-TASS/. Syrian opposition has presented its list for exchange of prisoners of war (PWOs), official of the Syrian National Coalition Monzer Akbik told reporters here on Sunday.
“Surely, we have presented our list,” he said. “We do not have any civilians in captivity, only prisoners of war,” Akbik said, adding that the Free Syrian Army does not have any connections with Al-Qaeda.
For her part, a political advisor of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Bouseina Shaaban told reporters on Sunday that the government delegation “does not object to debate the issue of prisoners.” “We are only disappointed by the fact that opposition gives unilateral assessment of current events in Syria. They do not say about atrocities that gunmen committed, for instance, in the city of Adra,” she said. “This selective approach evokes regret,” Shaaban added.
On Friday, January 24, at talks with Special Envoy of the United Nations Organisation and the League of Arab States for Syrian Crisis Lakhdar Brahimi Syrian delegation informed about Damascus’ consent to free more than 5,500 prisoners.
