GENEVA, February 5. /TASS/. The launch of a full-format conference on the Syrian settlement in Geneva would be the shortest way to cessation of bloodshed in Syria, President of Syria’s Popular Front for Change and Liberation Qadri Jamil said on Friday after a meeting with United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
It is necessary to launch Geneva-3 as soon as possible to stop bloodshed, he said, when asked about possible impacts on the talks of the offensive of Syrian government troops in Aleppo.
Apart from that, he stressed it is vitally important to finally identify terrorist groups.
Earlier, a Syrian opposition delegation that had been formed in Riyadh said the situation near Aleppo was among the factors behind the deterioration of the situation around the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva.
The "Moscow group" of the Syrian opposition expects the intra-Syrian negotiations to resume as soon as possible, President of Syria’s Popular Front for Change and Liberation Qadri Jamil said on Friday, following the talks with UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
"De Mistura named 25 February as an official date for the new round of the talks," Jamil said. "We hope they will be resumed as soon as possible."
On Wednesday, the intra-Syrian talks in Switzerland’s Geneva were suspended for three weks. UN special envoy de Mistura said the pause was because the sides had focused on discussing procedural issues and not on solving particular tasks on alleviating humanitarian problems of the Syrian people.
