ABU DHABI, July 31. /TASS/. Damascus is ready to resume the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva without preliminary conditions and without foreign interference, SANA news agency quoted Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mikdad as saying during talks with deputy United Nations Syrian envoy in Damansuc on Sunday.
According to SANA, the sides discussed preparations for the resumption of talks in Geneva within next few weeks.
All parties interested in settling the conflict in Syria should focus on anti-terrorist efforts, Mikdad was quoted as saying. In this connection, he reminded of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s recent decree on general amnesty for members of armed groups and of the recent development in Aleppo where humanitarian corridors have been established for civilians and gunmen who want to get out of the blocked districts of the city. These steps, according to the Syrian diplomat, are geared to create conditions to establish stability both in Aleppo and in the entire country.
On July 26, United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said the next round on intra-Syrian talks may be convened in late August.
