MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, Bashar Jaafari, the head of the Damascus delegation at the negotiations in Geneva, told Sputnik about the arrival of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia to instruct Syrian opposition's Riyadh-backed High Negotiations Committee (HNC) at the intra-Syrian talks.
"I am not aware," Makhous said.
The spokesman abstained from commenting on criticism by Bashar Jaafari, the head of the government's delegation against HNC over the decision to halt participation in the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva.
"I just do not want to comment on it," Makhous told Sputnik.
The Damascus delegation at the intra-Syrian talks plans to stay in Geneva as long as needed and will "respond accordingly" to the attempts of the Riyadh-backed opposition to derail the negotiations, Jaafari told Sputnik on Monday.
