    Damascus does not favor Syria federalization initiative elaborated by the Kurdish representatives.

    GENEVA (Sputnik) — Damascus opposes Syria federalization initiative put forward by the Kurdish representatives, the head of the Damascus delegation to the Geneva proximity talks on the Syrian reconciliation said Wednesday.

    "Betting on creating any kind of division between Syrians will be a total failure," Bashar Jaafari told reporters asked to comment on the initiative.

    He added that the delegation arrived in Geneva to discuss "how to keep unity and independence of Syria."
