GENEVA, January 31. /TASS/. The delegation of Syria’s opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC) has not announced any preconditions for participation in the peace talks in Geneva, a spokesperson for UN’s Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura has told TASS.

Spokesperson Khawla Mattar said the opposition group backed by Riyadh has not informed the UN envoy's office that it may leave Geneva in case its demands were not met.

A spokesman for the delegation of the HNC, Salem al-Muslad, said on Saturday the Syrian opposition was ready to begin the negotiations in Geneva without any preconditions

According to him, the delegation will demand providing humanitarian access to Syrian cities, releasing prisoners and rendering humanitarian assistance. He noted though that those "were not preconditions."

"These are not our preconditions. We have come here, and we are ready to begin these talks, but are also here to make sure that Resolution 2254 of the UN Security Council is implemented," al-Muslad said."We are ready to negotiate," he said. "We came here to make the process a success.".
