Russian President’s Special Representative for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov met a delegation of the Syrian national opposition in Moscow. The delegation included Elian Masaad, Secretary of the National Conference Party/A Secular Syria/ and official spokesman for the Syrian National Work Committee, Barwin Ibrahim, leader of the Syrian Youth for Development Party, sheikh Nawaf al-Milhem, General Secretary of the People’s Party and representative of the Syrian tribes and Tareq al-Ahmad, member of the leadership of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party.
HNC (High Negotiations Committee) represents a coalition of 15 “moderate” opposition (moderate cannibal terrorists) factions that were put together in Saudi Arabia last month. The group said earlier that it would not join the negotiations unless 1) Bashar Assad’s government abandoned sieges of settlements, 2) put a stop to air strikes, 3) release numerous captives (terrorists).
Despite the positive statements of De Mistura, if these are the premises, we do not believe that these meetings will produce anything good, while the only fields on which it is possible to solve the Syrian crisis are the battlefields and the direct reconciliations amongst people on Syrian soil.
