GENEVA, February 26. /TASS/. The so-called Cairo group of the Syrian opposition led by Jihad Makdissi is having consultations with United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
The meeting is focusing on the issue of forming a single delegation of the opposition at the talks with the Syrian government. The U.N. envoy is expected to hand over to the Cairo group his proposals concerning procedures of the intra-Syrian consultations.
Earlier in the day, Makdissi told TASS that even if the opposition fails to form a single delegation is should not be an obstacle at the Geneva talks. He said he would inform de Mistura about his vision of that matter.
