Spokesman for the opposition’s High Negotiations Committee (HNC) Riad Nassan Agha said that the committee will continue to press for the implementation the UN Security Council resolutions on Syria, especially those regarding establishing a democratic rule without Bashar al-Assad.
Agha pointed out that the Assad regime continues to ignore UN Security Council resolutions and seeks to form a new government with the so-called “internal opposition” that it tolerates. He said that the “internal opposition” has not yet entered into serious negotiations with the Assad regime, noting that there is still a wide gap between the two parties.
HNC’s Vice-president Yahya Alqadamani said that the all proposals for a solution put forward by the Assad regime, including drafting a new constitution and a quota system between the regime and the opposition, are merely bait designed to lure the unprincipled so-called internal opposition. Alqadamani warned that those who take this bait will face an ultimate downfall.
“We will not accept such proposals because we insist on a political solution in line with the Geneva Communiqué of 2012 and the relevant international resolutions,” Alqadamani stressed.
Alqadamani went on to say that the opposition will not agree to a political solution based on sharing power with the regime officials with blood on their hands. He appealed to “all Syrians” saying that “time has come for all Syrians, including supporters of the regime, to act in order save the country and put an end to foreign interventions because we all have a common fate. Syria is for all its sons and daughters and will not be for one group only.” (Source: Smart News Agency+ The New Arab)
