GENEVA, March 31. /TASS/. The Syrian government delegation to the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva has handed over to United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura a package of documents with proposals on general principles of settlement and anti-terrorism efforts, Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Bashar al-Jaafari, who lead the delegation, said on Friday commenting on the results of the fifth round of intra-Syrian talks.
"During this round we presented a number of documents to the special envoy. The first one is dedicated to anti-terrorism efforts, the second one - to general principles of political settlement," he said.
"Of course, during this round we discussed four basic topics - constitution, elections, anti-terrorism efforts, and government," he said, adding that other participants in the talks provided no reaction to these documents.
"No wonder of those who don’t want to fight against terrorism and don’t want political settlement other than what exists in their fantasy," the Syrian diplomat said. "They fancy us giving them the keys to governing the country."
"Time has proved that these fancies are unrealizable," al-Jaafari stressed.
