‘Syria’s Tomorrow’ Opposition Leader Counts on Russia in Intra-Syrian Talks

Syrian opposition group Syria’s Tomorrow is placing great expectations on Russia’s role in intra-Syrian dialogue that would include opposition and the government, Ahmad Jarba, the group’s leader, said Thursday at a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

The opposition leader said that he was expecting to discuss ceasefire, the de-escalation zones, the fight against terrorism, which “Russia is very concerned with” and efforts to support Geneva talks, which are “lagging” with Lavrov.

“The intra-Syrian dialogue is necessary, between the opposition and the forces backing the government… And the role of Russia in this settlement process is very important. We are counting on Russia’s role,” Jarba added.

Jarba added that he was hoping to find “creative solutions” for the Syrian peace settlement.
