GENEVA (Sputnik) — The Syrian High Negotiations Committee (HNC) has not yet reviewed proposals from the Syrian government on the war-torn country’s reconciliation, but would not agree to keep President Bashar Assad in power or form a national unity government, the HNC delegation's head told Sputnik on Saturday.
"We have not yet studied them [proposals of Damascus], but before we take a look, I can tell you that we have become accustomed to the regime offering three main points and they are all not realistic – keeping Bashar Assad and figures in power from his circle, but this will not happen. The discussion about a transitional government will also not take place," Asaad Zoubi said.
"This is an international document, and we urge the international community to work on the implementation of the international law," the delegation head concluded.
The 2012 Geneva communique stipulates that all parties to the Syrian conflict form a transitional governing body with full executive powers by a mutual consent.
The new round of intra-Syrian talks began in Geneva on April 13. According to UN Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, this round of talks will entail discussions on the topics of political transition, governance, and the constitution.
