GENEVA, February 26. /TASS/. The Moscow group of the Syrian opposition vigorously condemns the terrorist attacks that took place in Homs on Saturday, and assumes that this act of crime is aimed at derailing intra-Syrian peace talks in Geneva, according to the statement of the head of the Moscow group’s delegation to Geneva talks Hamza Monzer.
"We vigorously condemn any forms of terrorism and all similar acts of crime, as well as what happened today (on Saturday) in the Syrian city of Homs," the document obtained by TASS said. "The continuation of the crisis creates a favorable background for flourishing terrorism, which is being supported on the international scale. Those crimes are aimed at derailing the Geneva talks, which means they oppose the political settlement," the statement said.
"The unity of all Syrians, both opponents and supporters (of the government - TASS) reached through political settlement in accordance with the UN Security Council resolution 2254 is the only guarantee of a successful fight against terrorism. We assume that the only response to Homs blasts and other similar terror acts is the necessary to fight through every hardship to open the way for a political resolution," the document said.
‘Moscow platform’ urges "Syrian people to assume all measures to prevent a breakdown in Geneva negotiations," Monzer said.
Earlier on Saturday terror attacks hit Ghouta and Mahatta areas in Syrian Homs killing 30 people, more than 30 were reported injured.
