US distorts UN-backed principle of forming Syrian talks’ opposition delegation – Moscow


Such reaction of the Russian Foreign Ministry was provoked by the words of the US State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner, who claimed on Thursday that “last month’s conference in Riyadh brought together a broad, representative group of the opposition.”

Zakharova said that the UNSC resolution “made it clear that the delegation of the Syrian opposition should be formed particularly taking into account the opposition meetings that were held in Moscow, Cairo and Er-Riyadh as well as other similar initiatives, so that [this delegation] could be really representational and inclusive as well as represented a broad set of forces opposing the rightful Syrian President Bashar Assad.”

She also emphasized that this issue was discussed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his US counterpart John Kerry during the meeting in Zurich on Wednesday.
