Spokesman for the opposition’s High Negotiations Committee Riad Nassan Agha said that the committee seeks to enhance Syria’s intra-national dialogue, denying reports about agreeing to form a unified negotiating delegation with the Moscow and Cairo opposition group.
Nassan Agha pointed out that the HNC has set up a special committee to hold consultations across the whole Syrian opposition spectrum with the aim of boosting intra-national dialogue but not to expand the HNC or to form a unified negotiation delegation with the Moscow and Cairo group.
Nassan Agha added that the HNC will participate in the upcoming meetings in Geneva, stressing that there will be only technical and legal consultations but no negotiations. He explained that the HNC’s committees that will take part in the upcoming meetings in Geneva are advisory committees, not negotiating committees, and, therefore, they will not be able to negotiate with the Assad regime.
