GENEVA, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Syrian government delegation believes it would be illogical to discuss simultaneously the struggle with terrorism and the setting up of an interim government, Buthaina Shaaban, an advisor to President Bashar al-Assad told reporters Wednesday.
Apart from being illogical, it would also be highly counterproductive, she said.
The parties to the Syrian conflict returned to the negotiating table on Monday, February 10, to open the second round of the Geneva-2 international peace conference on Syria. The first round of Geneva-2, which ended January 31, failed to bring any substantive results.
Geneva-2 was organized by Russia and the United States and seeks to negotiate a solution to the Syrian crisis which has claimed over 100,000 lives and displaced millions since its start in 2011, according to UN statistics.
