GENEVA, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Syria’s National Coalition has stated progress at the Geneva talks on peace settlement of the conflict in Syria, as discussions of a possibility to set up an interim government have begun at the conference table.
“It seemed to us the government team was more ready for the talks and more opened in order to discuss this issue,” NCORF spokesperson Louay Safi said on Wednesday.
However, the spokesperson said, “The government also insists on discussing the fight against terrorism.”
“A positive step forward has been taken: we’ve not yet discussed concrete details (on a transition government). But we’ve determined a general plan,” Safi said, adding, “We’re starting discussions on the composition of the government and its powers.”
At the same time, he said, “In my view, the government team doesn’t want to discuss this issue on the basis of the Geneva Communiqué.
