In late June, Syrian President Bashar Assad tasked Electricity Minister Imad Mohammad Deeb Khamis with forming a new government. Reconciliation Affairs Minister Ali Haidar remains the only opposition representative in the new government.
"The new government has no new group from the opposition. It cannot happen because Geneva dialogue has stopped. There needs to be progress on the political solution… There is war on the ground and everyone is trying to have victory. Because of this, the government will never take any part of the opposition to participate with them," Krydee said.
She said that, as the political process in the country had stopped, the government would not make any political step toward opposition for a while.
"The government will wait to have at least some progress on the political solution [at Geneva talks]," Krydee said.
Another problem for the group comes "from the outside," as other opposition representatives, such as Riyadh-based High Negotiations Committee (HNC), are unwilling to see them as equal partners and recognize them as "real opposition."
The participants of the UN-mediated talks in Geneva include the Syrian government representatives and three opposition groups — the Riyadh-formed HNC, the Moscow-Cairo and the Hmeimim groups. At the latest round of talks in Geneva, the HNC walked out, citing the continuous fighting in Syria and the lack of progress on humanitarian issues.
