BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – The chief of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces Nasr Al-Hariri told the AFP News Agency this weekend that peace talks are ‘paralyzed’ with the Syrian government.

“The political process is paralyzed,” he said, calling for the different international efforts to work hand-in-hand and not compete against each other.

During a meeting with the new UN envoy to Syria, Geir Pederson, Hariri said that the international community no longer has the will to push towards a political solution inside the country.

“Pedersen is the fourth emissary and was preceded by other respected envoys,” Hariri told AFP.

“The absence of international will to push towards a political solution has hampered the UN and its envoys from doing anything,” Hariri continued.

Hariri then turned his attention to the Astana Peace Conference, which he also criticized because of some of the states participating in the talks.

“Some parties from Astana who support the regime are continuing to obstruct the formation of the (constitutional) committee,” Hariri added.

According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the next Astana Peace Conference meeting is expected to take place next month.

Mister Hariri Weaver is paralyzed in the head.

This born looser merely slanders the winners.

Any way, just look at who are the “Syrian opposition”, muhaha!
Al-Zinki, HTS, etc etc etc!
All fücking jihadists.
Actually, as soon as 2012, 85% of opposition ‘groups’ were jihadists, the 15% remaining joined SDF.
