GENEVA, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Syria’s government delegation called for making a statement on combating terrorism, but the opposition has rejected it, an official of the Syrian delegation told Itar-Tass.
“The government’s delegation has presented a document, which include several points on fighting terrorism. The opposition has rejected the statement,” the official said.
Such position “does not meet aspirations of the Syrian people and pose a threat to the country’s security”, the official said.
The delegation of the National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces (NCORF) has refused to the draft document, which condemns terrorism.
Syrian TV reported that the government delegation had put forth the draft statement, which “calls for struggling against terrorist groups and expelling them from Syria”.
“Countering terrorism is a duty of every Syrian citizen,” the document says.
