GENEVA, Apr 26 : A Syrian opposition group tolerated by Damascus said on Tuesday that it has asked the UN to merge all opposition factions into one delegation at the next round of peace talks.
The comments came from Syria's former deputy premier Qadri Jamil, who was sacked by President Bashar al-Assad in 2013 and now heads the so-called Moscow Group, an opposition faction close to the Kremlin which has met repeatedly with UN envoy Staffan de Mistura at negotiations in Geneva.
When the Syria peace process was relaunched in January, the UN recognised the Saudi and Western-backed High Negotiations Committee (HNC) as the official opposition delegation.
Jamil however said that approach was not working.     ?AFP
