Syrian government: Those who talk about a transitional period in Syria are unaware of Syria’s realities
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Meqdad said the Damascus government will never accept to discuss establishment of a transitional government in its talks with different parties.
Meqdad’s remarks came after the western media reports said earlier today that the representatives of the Syrian government and the opposition groups will meet in Moscow next week to discuss the transitional period in Syria.
“There is no talk about a transitional period in Syria and those who talk about this issue are unaware of Syria’s realities”, Meqdad told reporters after meeting with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdollahian in Tehran on Tuesday.
The senior diplomat said that the Damascus government would only accept to discuss national dialogue, a broad-based government and the constitutional process in Syria
He reiterated that no official report has been received yet about a possible meeting between the Syrian government and opposition groups.
