GENEVA (Sputnik) —The Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee does not maintain any contacts with the Moscow-Cairo opposition group and has no plans to hold meetings with it, HNC spokesman Monzer Makhous told Sputnik on Tuesday.
"We do not have any contacts with them," Makhous said answering a question whether HNC would meet with the Moscow-Cairo group.
On Monday, Bashar Jaafari, the head of the government's delegation at Geneva talks, told Sputnik that the Damascus delegation at the intra-Syrian talks would "pray for" the direct talks once a unified delegation of all Syrian opposition forces is formed.
However, Syria's opposition High Negotiations Committee rejects the idea of opposition unification into a single delegation before the next round of intra-Syrian peace talks in Geneva, HNC spokesman Monzer Makhous told Sputnik on Tuesday.
"We believe that the issue of the opposition has already been solved, first we, the High [Negotiations] Committee, are not some kind of an initiative, we are the result of international decision, including of Russia's and Iran's <…> There are four blocs, a coalition, which in itself represents a wide specter of opposition. There is an internal committee, the so-called pro-Russian, which is very moderate, it is now with us completely. There are representatives of military units and a wide range of independent [groups]. Therefore, we believe that we represent the opposition," Makhous said.
