    According to reports, Hmeymim group will support the Syrian opposition Moscow platform's proposal to appoint five vice presidents in Syria's transitional government only as a part of a wider comprehensive peace settlement plan.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Hmeymim group will support the Syrian opposition Moscow platform's proposal to appoint five vice presidents in Syria's transitional government only as a part of a wider comprehensive peace settlement plan, Tarek Ahmad, a member of the Hmeymim group, told Sputnik on Thursday.

    "We will support this or any other proposal only if it includes a comprehensive approach towards solving the Syrian crisis and fulfills the UN Security Council resolution on war on terror and all conditions of Vienna talks rather than only a political aspect of the solution," Ahmad said.

    The Moscow platform of the Moscow-Cairo-formed group proposed appointing several vice-presidents, deputies for Syrian President Bashar Assad, during the latest round of intra-Syrian talks in Geneva on April 13-27. The arrangement, which enables the formation of a transitional governing body, allegedly received a positive response from UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura. The Riyadh-formed High Negotiations Committee opposition delegation, however, ruled out the proposals, saying that Assad must go, and it is the "red line."

    "We need to search for a complete package to end the war in Syria. That means that the Saudis, the Turks and the Americans and those who are behind them along with some European states should support fight against terrorism as the Russians always point," Ahmad stressed.
