Syrian FM Walid al-Moallem said Saturday that the delegation of the Syrian Arab Republic to the Syrian-Syrian dialogue in Geneva showed belief in Syrians right and Syria's future.
Al-Moallem added, in a press conference, that the Security Council resolution no. 2254 and the two Vienna Communiques state that the Syrian people alone have the right to determine their future.
"The dialogue should be a Syrian- led among the Syrians without foreign interference and without preconditions, while the statements of "Riyadh opposition" delegation, made even before the go to Geneva, were full of preconditions," he added.
The Syrian top official further highlighted that the Syrian government has asked the UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura to hand a list of names of those with whom we were going to have dialogue, because we wouldn't hold dialogue with ghosts."
Al-Moallem added that "Riyadh opposition" delegation decided to walk away from the dialogue after victories made by the Syrian Arab Army..."We hoped they [the Riyadh opposition] would be happy just like our people were happy with breaking the three-and-a-half year siege of Nubbul and al-Zahraa, but they didn't feel happy simply because their affiliation is not to the Syrian people."
Morever, he asserted that it was the decision of the operators of "Riyadh opposition" delegation in Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar to undermine the dialogue in Geneva.
"Anyway, they did right walking out because they are not free to make decisions."
AL-Moallem warned that "Everyone should realize, on top of all de Mistura that Syria is going for a Syrian- Syrian dialogue without any preconditions and will not comply with any precondition set by any party whatsoever."
"Any ground incursion without state approval an act of aggression, aggressors will go home in coffins," he stated.
On the Russian role, the Syrian FM reiterated that "the Russian role won't stop before getting rid of terrorist groups in Syria."
"We didn't receive any invitation to attend Moscow 3, we don't link the battle field to politics."
