    The Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), which is a part of the Damascus Platform of Syrian opposition, is expected to visit Moscow in March to discuss the outcome of the ongoing intra-Syrian talks in Geneva and inter-party dialogue, Tarek Ahmad, a member of the party, told Sputnik on Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Damascus Platform, which was formed in November 2016 and includes Syrian opposition groups, lawmakers and members of the Syrian civil society, previously visited Moscow in January.

    "Yesterday, I have called the office of Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov. Our party, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party, may visit Moscow in March to hold meetings in the Foreign Ministry and the Russian State Duma. We will discuss an outcome of Geneva talks, relations between Russia and our party and future cooperation," Ahmad, who is also a Damascus Platform's spokesman, said.

    The Damascus Platform has not received an invitation for the UN-mediated intra-Syrian talks which started in Geneva on Thursday.

    It held meetings with Bogdanov and the chairman of the Russian lower house of parliament's international affairs committee, Leonid Slutsky.
