Syrian Opposition Seeks to Engage Russian Officials in Geneva

The Syrian political and paramilitary opposition seeks an opportunity to talk to Russian official representatives in order to change Moscow’s pro-Asad stance as talks on a political resolution of the conflict in Syria go on in Geneva, Iranian sources report.

The head of the High Negotiations Committee (HNC) sponsored by Saudi Arabia and posed to be the main opposition group at the talks, said his team was likely to meet with Russian delegates on the sidelines of the talks.

HNC repeatedly urges Russia to put pressure on Damascus and drive it towards the opposition’s prime demand of discussing political transition. This is while the government insists the talks should start with an agreement on the need to fight terrorism.
