"I have recently had a meeting with [Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail] Bogdanov. We have discussed a whole range of issues. I have told him about the contacts we have been setting with the opposition… I have also told him about the cooperation of efforts with [the leader of the Kurdish Democratic Progressive Party] Abdulhamid Darwish," Krydee told reporters at a press conference.
She stressed that the Syrian opposition must begin a dialogue in order to get international recognition.
Mais Krydee also stated that intra-Syrian dialogue on the political settlement is impossible until Aleppo is fully liberated from terrorists.
"We cannot come to [intra-Syrian] dialogue, without freeing Aleppo. Syrian state should and can reclaim this city," Krydee said speaking at press conference.
Krydee said that Hmeymim internal opposition group welcomes the possibility of a conference between all Syrian opposition forces held in Damascus, but insists groups need to lay down weapons beforehand.
"I am familiar with these reports. As a Syrian, from the bottom of my heart, I want these issues [Syrian settlement] to be decided in Damascus… We cannot welcome the participation [in national opposition gathering] of those who carry out armed struggle. But these does not apply to those who want to lay down their weapons," Krydee said at a press conference.
She added that Hmeymim group has nothing against the opposition conference being held elsewhere.
Over recent months, Aleppo became major battleground in Syria, engaging government forces, jihadists, and numerous opposition groups. Eastern Aleppo is currently encircled by government troops, and the fighting has affected thousands of civilians still trapped in the city.
Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with government forces fighting the Syrian opposition groups striving to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad. Damascus is also fighting numerous extremist groups, in particular the Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh), a terrorist group outlawed in Russia and many other countries.
