GENEVA, March 30. /TASS/. Forming a united opposition delegation would be a logical step, Muhannad Dleikan, who heads the delegation of the Syrian opposition’s Moscow Group, said at a briefing in Geneva on Thursday.
"We need to form a united delegation soon, but it does not have to be undifferentiated," he said adding that measures were being taken by the stakeholders as the current situation stipulated the need for such a delegation.
Dleikan made it clear that forming a united delegation, comprising representatives of the Moscow Group, the Cairo Group and the Riyadh-based group of the Syrian opposition, would pave the way for direct talks with the Syrian government. "This would be a logical step towards direct talks leading to a political solution," he explained.
The fifth round of the intra-Syrian talks began in Geneva on March 23. Four aspects of the Syria settlement (forming a government, drawing up a constitution, conducting elections and fighting terrorism) are under consideration.
