GENEVA, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia laments Syrian opposition delegation has come to Geneva with no changes to its line-up, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation at the UN office and other international organizations in Geneva Alexei Borodavkin told Itar-Tass.
“Both the Geneva Communiqué and Russian-U.S. statement on May 7, 2013 say the opposition’s delegation at the international conference about Syria should represent a wide palette of moderate opposition forces,” he said. “This goal was not achieved. Geneva-2 was attended by a delegation representing some political parties and groups comprising the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (NCSROF). It is to be regretted.”
“The opposition delegation's make-up needs to be considerably increased with representatives from the National Coordination Committee (NCC), Kurdish Democratic Union Party, and Popular Front for Change and Liberation,” he added. “Importantly, the delegation should include proxies of not only the opposition's foreign wing, but also of Syria's internal opposition.”
“If there is anyone who does not belong at the negotiation table, these are Jihadist terrorist groups,” said Borodavkin.
