(TASS) Syria’s opposition is ready to pool efforts with government troops to combat terrorist groups as soon as the process of peaceful transition of power is launched, Nasr al-Hariri of the Syrian High Negotiations Committee (HNC), who is taking part in the intra-Syrian consultations in Kazakhstan’s Astana, told TASS on Sunday.

“We will do that as soon as transition of power begins,” he said. “Otherwise, each party will fight against terrorists independently.”

He said the Syria people is unlikely to consolidate unless peace political process gets underway.

Talks between the Syrian government and armed opposition will begin in Astana on Monday to last for two days. The United Nations-brokered consultations in Geneva are scheduled to be launched on February 8.

Is this a joke?,could you really imagine the syrian army “uniting” with a bunch of terrorists it had just previously been fighting to the death with?

Ridiculous suggestion by the terrorist group.Demanding that a president should resign for you take his place is stupid.It is better to suggest a new constitution and a new election, where everyone is permitted to contest including Assad. Assad has the populous areas of the country including Aleppo.The terrorist leaders would not fare well in this election scenario.Consequentially, they resort to intimidation to force their agenda.Which I believe it will ultimately fail.They have no legal precedent internationally and locally to back their demand for a removal of a legitimate leader recognized by the UN and Syria’s constitution.

Who is who? This is confusing! As minority this opposition cannot demand the transition of power. They haven’t got an upper hand on anything. Who is going to negotiate there? There is no political opposition in Syria. Even if there was it would have been insignificant to make any demands. This is a political stunt orchestrated by the Russians.

So hang on, this terrorists are saying that they will happily join the Syrian Arab Army to fight against themselves, Hmm.. I am not convinced they honour they word, otherwise why don’t they help SAA to kill them right now and save time, and cancel the Astana meeting?

Democrats would fight terrorists unconditionally. p.s. => ready to pool efforts with government troops to combat terrorist groups as soon as the process of peaceful transition of power is launched => So these “democratic” opposition forces do not fight terrorists unless the SAA capitulates and Assad resigns for them?
