MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The negotiations between the Syrian government and the opposition would be "just a meeting" which would not lead to any results if there are no Kurdish representatives, the head of the Syrian Kurds’ representative office in Moscow said Saturday.
"The Kurds have still not received an invitation to participate in intra-Syrian talks. However, these talks will not be consistent without us. They could be called consultations or just a meeting which is unlikely to bring practical results," Rodi Osman told RIA Novosti.
"It would be logical to invite us to take part in the talks, but there are forces which are trying to not allow this," Osman added.
The Geneva talks between the government of Syria and the representatives of the Syrian opposition began on January 29. UN special envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura said on February 3 that the talks came to a temporary pause. The resumption of the intra-Syrian negotiation process is expected on February 25.
In January, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the intra-Syrian reconciliation talks would fail to reach a political settlement unless the Syrian Kurds were allowed to participate in the process.
