UN, September 30. /TASS/. The talks aimed at a truce between the government of Bashar Assad and the opposition in Geneva will continue for several months more, and then the parties intend to sign an agreement in Prague, Czech President Milos Zeman told reporters at the UN on Tuesday.
"Then [after the talks] an agreement on truce, as both parties to the conflict want, will be signed in Prague," he said.
"They (Syrians - TASS) already begin calling this document Prague Declaration," the president said. "On the other hand, I want to be realistic and thus I believe the Geneva talks will continue for several more months. Thus, the Prague Declaration is yet somewhere on the horizon."
On Tuesday, he had a meeting in New York with Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid Muallem, and planned a meeting with the Syrian opposition, which they had requested, but the meeting did not happen "due to traffic problems" in New York’s Manhattan.
"I expressed the desire to support their suggestion (on signing an agreement in Prague - TASS), if this agreement is reached with representatives of the democratic opposition," the Czech president said. "I cannot imagine an agreement with terrorist organisations like Islamic State or al-Qaeda.".
