The latest round of intra-Syrian talks took place in Geneva on April 13-27. An opposition group proposed the idea of appointing several vice-presidents, deputies for Syrian President Bashar Assad, and delegating his full powers to them. The arrangement, which enables the formation of a transitional governing body, allegedly received a positive response from de Mistura.
"A discussion is taking place with de Mistura regarding the form of the transitional body. Our proposal was that we suggest a transitional body so that there are five vice presidents," the source said.
"This is the only way out of the situation, as it can more or less finally satisfy both sides. A compromise must be reached, so I think that they will agree on this," the source added.
