    French President Emmanuel Macron assured Syria's HNC opposition of his readiness to be engaged in Geneva process, the Elysee Palace said Wednesday.

    PARIS (Sputnik) — French President Emmanuel Macron assured Syria's High Negotiations Committee (HNC) opposition of his readiness to reach a political settlement based on the Geneva process, the Elysee Palace said Wednesday.

    "The president assured [HNC General Coordinator Riad] Hijab of readiness to participate in the achievement of a comprehensive political settlement in the Syrian Arab Republic in the framework of the Geneva process," Macron's office said in a communique.

    The High Negotiations Committee was formed in late 2015 at a conference held in Saudi Arabia and serves as one of Syria's major opposition blocs.
