A delegation from the Syrian opposition’s Negotiations Committee headed by Nasr Al-Hariri met with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir on Sunday and discussed with him the outcome of the latest round of talks in Geneva and the negotiations process.
Hariri reiterated the Committee’s commitment to political solution in accordance with the international resolutions on Syria, most importantly the Geneva Communiqué of 2012 and UN Security Council resolutions 2118 and 2254. He stressed that the intransigence of the Assad regime had undermined efforts of the UN Special Envoy to Syrian Staffan de Mistura to achieve progress and push the political process forward.
Hariri pointed out that the Syrian opposition had fulfilled its duties and was still awaiting for the United Nations to fulfill its role and deliver the other side, namely the Assad regime, to the negotiating table. He said that the UN failed to bring the Assad regime to the negotiating table while the Assad regime persisted in its attempts to obstruct the implementation of international resolutions.
For his part, Foreign Minister Al-Jubeir reiterated the Kingdom’s support for the Syrian opposition’s Negotiations Committee as he renewed calls for the implementation of international resolutions and reaching a sustainable political solution that is needed to put an end to the suffering of the Syrian people, bring about political transition, and ensure the return of refugees to their homes.
Al-Jubair expressed his support for the plans by the Committee to visit member states of the UN Security Council to urge them to press for the implementation of international resolutions on Syria.
