Syria Ready for Geneva Peace Talks
Dec 26, 2015

Syria is ready to take part in peace talks in Geneva and hopes that the dialogue will help it form a national unity government, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said recently during a visit to Beijing.

  • The U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a resolution endorsing an international road map for a Syrian peace process, a rare show of unity among major powers on a conflict that has claimed more than a quarter of a million lives.

  • The U.N. plans to convene peace talks in Geneva towards the end of January.

  • Syria is ready to participate in the Syrian-Syrian dialogue in Geneva without any foreign interference.

  • Syria said, our delegation will be ready as soon as we receive a list of the opposition delegation.

  • Syria said, it hopes that this dialogue will be successful to help us in having a national unity government.

  • This government will compose a constitutional committee to look for a new Constitution with a new law of election so the parliamentary election will be held within the period of 18 months, more or less.

  • Vienna Negotiation: The resolution gives U.N. blessing to a plan negotiated earlier in Vienna that calls for a ceasefire, talks between the Syrian government and opposition and a roughly two-year timeline to create a unity government and hold elections.

  • But the obstacles to ending the war remain daunting, with no side in the conflict able to secure a clear military victory. Despite their agreement at the UN, the major powers are bitterly divided on who may represent the opposition as well as on the future of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

  • While relying on the region for oil supplies, China tends to leave West Asian diplomacy to the other permanent members of the U.N. Security Council—the U.S., Britain, France and Russia.
