Syrian opposition rejects plan

Monday, July 2, 2012

Representatives of the Syrian opposition have rejected the decision of the recent conference held in Geneva, because they do not wish to hold talks with President Bashar Assad according to a report by the Associated Press.
According to the Syrian opposition, although the proposed action plan contains some “positive elements” in general, it is unacceptable because it implies the participation of the ruling party in the resolution of the conflict.


In addition, the opposition is not satisfied that the plan does not set a specific time frame for resolving the crisis.

The so-called Syria Action Group formed to resolve the conflict in Syria, at its first ministerial meeting in Geneva on Saturday, reached a consensus on the fundamental principles for political change in the country.

In particular, they will provide for the establishment of a transitional government with the participation of all parties including opposition members and government representatives.
