GENEVA, March 28. /TASS/. Some participants in the Geneva talks on Syria have been preventing the success of the political process, said Muhannad Dleikan, who heads the delegation of the Syrian opposition’s Moscow Group.
"Some participants have been using various methods to hamper the talks and deadlock them," he said. Dleikan added that he meant the parties that "are not abiding by the (UN Security Council) Resolution 2254 and the principle of equivalence (of the four agenda topics) which was agreed on during the previous round of the talks." At the same time, Dleikan did not name the actual participants who, in his opinion, were trying to disrupt the Geneva political process.
According to the head of the Moscow Group delegation, the position of the United Nations team is just another problem as they allowed the parties to discuss the agenda topics one by one instead of discussing them simultaneously. "The principle of equivalence of the ‘four baskets’ (the addenda topics) should be ensured by a simultaneous discussion," Dleikan stressed. "The United Nations should listen to all parties and put forward the positions that are in line with the Resolution (2254) so that they could be implemented," Dleikan added.
