MOSCOW, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces has decided firmly to return to Geneva for talks on February 10 to advance on the path of political settlement of the Syrian armed conflict, visiting Syrian National Coalition’s leader Ahmad al-Jarba said at a meeting with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday.
“We arrived in Moscow and note an important role that Russia plays in the Syrian conflict settlement,” he said. “Relations between our peoples are historical, Syria is looking forward to results with impatience with due account of a role, which your country plays,” he noted.
“We agreed to participate in the Geneva peace conference to fulfill the Geneva communiqué, we stated about it publicly in Montreux,” al-Jarba noted. “We have already stated about our decision to participate in the second round of talks on February 10,” he added.
“We stated this, despite the fact that at the first round of inter-Syrian talks assassinations with use of barrels stuffed with explosives continued in Syria,” the National Coalition’s leader affirmed. “However, we have taken a firm decision to advance on the path of political settlement,” he added.
The country’s National Coalition leader also noted that at the Geneva talks his delegation “did not hear the government saying that they intend to fulfill the Geneva communiqué.”
