MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, Jarba discussed the perspective of Syria settlement talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

"We stress that this time the talks must be serious and constructive, unlike the last time when the talks failed. If the talks this summer would be a failure again, we would disappoint the Syrians. The people of Syria want the crisis to be solved," Jarba said.

New humanitarian corridors need to be created in Syria under the protection of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Ahmad Jarba said.

'Yes, in the current circumstances, yes. Year ago, I would say — no, this [the creation of humanitarian corridor] was impossible. At the moment, [it is] possible. Possible to create the humanitarian corridors under the protection of the Russian Aerospace Forces," Jarba stressed.

Humanitarian corridors need to be created particularly in the regions near Damascus, and in the eastern provinces of Syria, he added.

Moreover, the group needs support of the Russian Aerospace Forces in its fight against Daesh.

"Our armed people are present on the ground on the territories controlled by the IS [Daesh], especially in eastern Syria. We need support of the Russian Aerospace Forces to move forward," Jarba said.

Syria’s Tomorrow emerged in March in a new bid to unite liberal opposition forces under one umbrella organization.
