MOSCOW, April 16 (Itar-Tass) – A Pan-Syrian dialogue may begin in the near future, a representative of the Popular Front for Change and Liberation in Syria, Qadri Jamil, said after talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“Whereas before the idea of a dialogue was purely theoretical, now there is every chance of translating it into reality,” Jamil said. “All forces that before were against the dialogue (both inside and outside Syria) are now approaching the truth a dialogue is the sole solution.”
“Now we are discussing the details of the opportunity for coming to the negotiating table – what oppositional factions will be participating, the agenda, and how quickly that may be done,” he said.
Asked by Itar-Tass if there was a possibility such consultations might take place before the summer, he replied that there was no chance of setting firm dates in politics.
“But we can hope this may happen in the foreseeable future,” Jamil said. “Several months and, possibly, even weeks is the likely deadline.”
