MUNICH, February 12. /TASS/. A delegation of Syria’s opposition will take part in the peace talks in Geneva only if the implementation of a plan agreed on Thursday at the meeting of the International Syria Support Group in Munich begins, an official spokesman for the Riyadh-backed High Negotiations Committee (HNC) has said.
"If we see actions and implementation, we will soon meet with you in Geneva," Salem al-Meslet told reporters.
The spokesman has welcomed the peace plan adopted by the International Syria Support Group envisaging ceasefire and delivery of humanitarian assistance to citizens in Syria which has been hit by the civil war for almost five years.
At the meeting in Germany’s Munich on Thursday, the participants of the ISSG, consisting of around 20 countries, including Russia and the United States, agreed to ensure ceasefire in Syria within a week.
A working group co-chaired by Russia and the US will be set up to this aim that will develop "modalities" of a ceasefire.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the intra-Syrian dialogue should resume as soon as possible without preconditions or ultimatums.
"The importance of resuming the negotiating process was underscored today, when one of the opposition forces assumed an unconstructive stance and voiced its preliminary conditions," Lavrov said after the talks. "The talks must be resumed as soon as possible without any ultimatums and prerequisites and must involve a broad variety of opposition forces," the top Russian diplomat added.
