Syrian opposition to announce Sochi decision Saturday

Syrian opposition to announce Sochi decision Saturday

Yahya al-Aridi, the spokesman for the opposition delegation in Vienna, was speaking at the end of two days of UN-brokered talks between the Syrian regime and opposition. "And it is not worth the ink that it is printed on because the people will not and do not accept solutions which come down on parachutes or on the backs of tanks", Ja'afari said.

The five states' proposals recommend that de Misutra focus the parties on reforming the constitution, on holding United Nations -supervised elections for Syrians inside and outside the country, and creating a "safe and neutral environment" for the vote.

"America wants to play the Syria card in its dealings with Russian Federation and to respond to the growing influence of the Iranians", said Hasni Abidi, director of the Cernam centre for Arab studies in Geneva.

The senior Syrian negotiator also blasted Jordan for opening "its territories for foreign terrorists" and becoming "a haven for training camps" for them.

The Syrian opposition delegation at peace talks in Vienna received a pledge on Friday from Russian Federation that it would press the Syrian army to enforce a ceasefire in the besieged enclave of eastern Ghouta, an opposition spokesman said on Friday.

The Sochi peace congress was announced after their last meeting in December.

"I hope that the forthcoming Syrian national dialogue congress in Sochi will contribute to a revived and credible intra-Syrian process under the United Nations in Geneva", he added. On Thursday, Russia said some 1,600 people had been invited to the Congress of National Dialogue aimed at resolving the years-long crisis in the Arab country.

Zorc said the following in a statement to German media outlets, transcript via Kicker . I'd be informed about changes, and he's part of my plans.

The UN has yet to decide whether to attend the congress.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian on Wednesday called the Vienna talks the "last hope" for reaching a political solution, raising worries over a "considerable worsening of the humanitarian situation" in Afrin, Idlib and Eastern Ghouta.

"The opposition has no reason to go to Sochi if the Russians don't win any commitments from Damascus".

Previous rounds have taken place sporadically in Geneva, with a mandate to discuss new elections, reformed governance, a new constitution and the fight against terrorism.

A parallel peace process between Syria's warring parties in the Kazakh capital Astana has resulted in significant achievements instead, leading to ceasefires and the establishment of de-escalation zones across the conflict-ridden country.

That has heightened tensions with Turkey's Western allies - particularly the United States, which has backed the Kurdish YPG in their fight against the Daesh - with Germany calling for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to hold talks over Ankara's operation "Olive Branch".
