MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. The Geneva III conference on Syria may convene after November 15, leader of the Popular Front for Change and Liberation Qadri Jamil said on Monday.
"The working groups on Syria initiated by [UN Special Envoy for Syria] Staffan de Mistura should start working in mid-September and finish their work by November 15. After that, we will think about Geneva III," Jamil said.
General coordinator of the National coordination Body for Democratic Change Hassan Abdul Azim said the Syrian opposition is thankful to Russia for its efforts to promote the process of peaceful settlement in this Middle Eastern country.
"We are thankful to Russia’s Foreign Ministry for organizing this meeting and also for the efforts that the Russian leadership and Russian Foreign Ministry makes to facilitate the political process in Syria," Azim said. "We fully agree with Russian ideas put forward in the UN framework, including on holding Geneva III as envisaged by the Geneva communique from 30 June 2012. We are thankful to Russia for working in this direction," he added.
"In the framework of the coordination committee that was established in 2011, we are trying to bring together the positions of all sides on future political settlement in Syria," Azim continued adding that "several problems still exist in this sphere."
Azim thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for his initiative to create a broad anti-terrorist front that brings together Iran, Saudi Arabia and other countries. "We are thankful for the consistent efforts of the Russian Foreign Ministry and Russian leadership to stop bloodshed in our country," the Syrian opposition representative said.
He also noted that the Syrian opposition values the efforts of UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura who is "playing an important part" in the settlement process. Azim stressed that the Syrian opposition tries to engage as many players as possible in the process and "supports the efforts of Egypt, other Arab countries, international players."
