BEIRUT, February 16, 22:09 /ITAR-TASS/. The delegation of the Syrian government has managed to agree a favourable agenda to start a next round of Geneva talks, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallen told Syrian journalists onboard a plane heading from Geneva to Damascus on Sunday.
He said he did not share the opinion about the results of second round of consultations that ended on Saturday voiced by foreign ministers of France and Great Britain who placed responsibility for its failure on official Damascus. “There is nothing new in such a position, since both Paris and London are members of the anti-Syrian plotting,” Muallen noted.
In his words, the information war unleashed by the United States against him was triggered by the fact that the government delegation had managed to insist on its version of the agenda. He said that aggressive threats coming from Washington were “an attempt to exert psychological pressure on the Syrian negotiators.”
He reaffirmed that at the next round of talks in Geneva the government delegation would keep to the agenda topped by the provision of stopping violence and fighting against terrorism. “We hope United Nations mediator Lakhdar Brahimi would continue the negotiating process until results are finally reached,” the Syrian foreign minister stressed.
