"Russia has an advantage over other international mediators in settling the situation in Syria, as it maintains contacts with all the opposition groups as well as with representatives of the government," Qadri Jamil from the People's Will Party said.
All international mediators will be welcome to participate in working out the Syrian conflict, once talks are resumed, he stressed, but so far the part that other major negotiators play in the process "was not constructive," Jamil, who is also a former deputy prime minister, stressed.
"Russia's position towards the Syrian talks was always balanced and well placed," he added.
This week Moscow hosted intra-Syrian talks involving government officials, representatives of the opposition parties and the UN special envoy for Syria.
The seasoned politician believes that the dialogue in Russia's capital will bring significant results and surely have an impact on the Syrian crisis, adding that "those who oppose a political settlement [to the crisis] today will change their mind."
The second round of talks between government and the opposition parties in Syria may take place in Moscow in late February or early March, a Syrian opposition delegate told RIA Novosti on Friday.
