GENEVA, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. U.N./LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi is holding separate meetings with delegations of the Syrian government and the opposition, the press service of the U.N. Office at Geneva told Itar-Tass.
Meanwhile, there are issues where hopes of Brahimi and certain external players were not justified. The opposition’s delegation was urged to become more representational. However, that did not happen. “Composition of the opposition’s delegation remains unchanged,” a source at the National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces told Itar-Tass.
The Syrian government’s delegation will be led by Minister of Foreign Affairs Walid al-Mouallem and the opposition delegation will be led by NCORF head Ahmed al-Jarba. During the first round of talks, the parties declined to appear in the negotiating room. They delegated the powers to their representatives — Syrian permanent representative to the U.N. Bashar al-Jaafari and member of the NCORF Political Bureau Hadi al-Bahra.
