PARIS, December 10. /TASS/. The Syrian opposition is ready to resume talks on peaceful settlement of the conflict in Syria "without preconditions," France's Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said after a meeting of the Group of Syrian Friends in Paris on Saturday.
He said, this statement was made earlier in the day during the consultations in Paris by head of the Syrian High Negotiations Committee Riyad Hijab.
"He said the opposition is ready to resume talks without any preconditions," the foreign minister said. "This is a suggestion, which should be accepted."
Resuming of the peace process in the Arab country, he said, is a key priority of the Friends of Syria Group.
"It is necessary to outline terms for a true transition political process, which could guarantee further peaceful Syria, united in its variety, and it is necessary to resume the talks on the basis of Resolution 2254 of the UN Security Council," the minister said. "All the parties should confirm publicly they are prepared for taking part in those talks.".
