Syrian opposition says it wants to make peace talks work, test Assad

January 30, 2016 23:56

A Syrian opposition delegation arrived in Geneva late on Saturday saying they were keen to make U.N. peace talks a success and test the government's intention to implement UN resolutions.

Salim al-Muslat, spokesman for the High Negotiations Committee, said President Bashar al-Assad must release women and children from government jails and allow aid into besieged areas, but that there were no preconditions for talks.

"We are keen to make this negotiation a success. But we should ask the other side. The other side is pretending to represent the Syrian people. In fact, he is killing the Syrian people," Muslat told a scrum of reporters as the delegation arrived at their hotel in Geneva after a flight from Riyadh.
