Moscow does not exclude contacts with Syrian opposition

Moscow does not exclude contacts with the Syrian opposition in the near future, including those who did not take part in talks, the Russian President’s special envoy to the Middle East, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said.

According to him, some opposition leaders are in Paris, Istanbul, Geneva and other cities.

The diplomat said that at present, there is a group of Syrians in Europe. Until now, it had no contacts with us but it wants to hold a dialogue.

At the same time, Mikhail Bogdanov said that there is no unity among the Syrian opposition groups. Some of them do not believe that the National Coalition for Opposition, which was recognized as a legitimate representative of the Syrian people by many Western countries, expresses their interests.
