The Syrian opposition commented on its position on resolving the crisis.

The Syrian political opposition reaffirms its commitment to a political solution to the crisis in the country and UN Security Council resolution 2254, Badr Jamus, head of the negotiating commission of the Syrian opposition, said.

The negotiating commission of the Syrian opposition held its first meeting since 2019 in Geneva on June 3-4, in the presence of all its participants. It is noteworthy that until recently the commission was in a state of crisis due to the boycott of its activities by a number of opposition platforms.

“We are ready, united and agree that a political solution is the basis, and resolution 2254 is our compass. In the final statement, it was clear that we will follow any existing path that will lead us to a political settlement and resolution 2254,”  Jamus said.

Jamus added that the Syrian political opposition still sees Geneva as the only suitable place for negotiations with official Damascus, basing its position on the neutrality of the Swiss city.

“We still insist that the best place is Geneva: It is a neutral place and we do not want to enter into conflicts between states and ways … This is a neutral place of the United Nations. We were not offered alternatives for discussion, and our position on the issue Geneva is clear,” Jamus said.
