The Syrian Coalition said that the Syrian opposition presented itself as a true and serious partner to the United Nations in the efforts aimed at achieving political transition in Syria during the second round of Geneva talks.
The Assad regime, on the contrary, is seeking to stonewall a political solution.
Member of the Syrian Coalition’s political committee Abdul Ahad Steifo, who is currently in Geneva, said that the opposition’s negotiating delegation has proved to be a true representative of the Syrian revolution and showed firm adherence to the goals of the revolution.
Steifo added that the opposition’s negotiating delegation met with international organizations concerned with the subjects of transitional justice and national reconciliation on the sidelines of the ongoing negotiations in Geneva. He said that the opposition delegation raised the issues of accountability and the release of detainees from Assad’s prisons, especially women and children.
Steifo added that negotiations are still at the beginning, noting that they have not yet neared collapse which is what the Assad regime seeks to do by refusing direct negotiations. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
