The idea of appointing three deputies for Syrian President Bashar Assad is unacceptable regardless of the fact who has proposed it, the Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee (HNC) spokesman Monzer Makhous told Sputnik on Tuesday.
GENEVA (Sputnik) — According to media reports, UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura proposed on Friday during his meeting with the HNC representatives in Geneva to select three candidates for the post of the vice president. De Mistura said Monday the idea was proposed by experts.
"De Mistura initially said 'the idea is not mine,' but then he said 'yes, it was me as well.' It is absolutely unacceptable for us regardless of the fact who said that, who proposed it," Makhous said.
On Sunday, a source in one of the Syrian opposition groups told Sputnik that appointing three deputies for the Syrian president was envisaged in the country's constitution and might be an option to put an end to the political crisis in the country.
