GENEVA, April 19. /TASS/. The Cairo platform (part of the Moscow-Cairo group) is looking forward to a speedy return of the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) to the intra-Syrian consultations in Geneva, representative of the Cairo platform Jihad Makdissi said on Tuesday.

"We understand this stance, but we hope that the HNC will resume its participation in the negotiations to make sure the entire spectrum of the Syrian opposition is represented at them," he said.

"Our negotiations are held simultaneously with the dramatic events in Syria," Makdissi noted. "We support a complete cessation of hostilities and call for ensuring humanitarian access to Syria."

According to the opposition member, the Cairo platform is fully aware of what is happening in Syria.

"We understand the position of the Riyadh opposition group. It is very difficult to hold peace talks in such a difficult and deteriorating situation on the ground," he said.

"Perhaps, some people view our negotiations as luxury, but it is necessary to pay attention to simply honoring the ceasefire," Makdissi added.
