"I believe Russia knows very well that 3 hours are not enough in terms of allowing aid to the city. We need to see something really different… If Russia is able to suspend fire for 3 hours, I am sure it can do it for longer than that, it can activate the cessation of hostilities, which is what we are looking for," Kodmani said.
"Even if we are talking about a provisional measure for a momentarily relief, 3 hours are not enough, it's a sign that Russia is able to calibrate the intensity of this attack on the city," she added.
"Any rapprochement between the big powers is an improvement. Because we have much of polarisation on the ground, and the Syrians pay the price for this polarization," Kodmani said.
"I believe Turkey has been a faithful supporter of the Syrian people, I think it realizes, being at a border with Syria, that if you want to bring stability to that region, there needs to be a serious political solution. So, coordination with Turkey is good, including in context of its rapprochement with Moscow… Turkey has a capacity to be a bridging power in this conflict, and i think it is seriously motivated to play a role and work hard on reaching a realistic solution," Kodmani stressed.
'There is a strategic choice of the opposition of going for the political solution, and the HNC has been calling for the restoring of cessation of hostilities, to make that possible. We would like to go to Geneva as soon as that is made possible. At the moment I cannot see any power telling us that the conditions allow us to have something constructive in Geneva. The messages we are getting have been that it's not time for politics at the moment, it's all about a military solution," Kodmani said.
