Ahiqar Rashid, Assyrian representative of the so-called Moscow-platform,comments the ongoing Syria negotiations in Geneva 5 (23-31 March). He can not see any coordination between different Assyrian representatives. He also got the impression that both the regime and the SNC seem to delay the case, after rumors that the UN envoy Staffan De Mistura will leave and be replaced.
Further, he does not agree to give priority to any of the four ”baskets” of the negotiations (transition of the government, the constitution, the elections and the fight against terrorism). The aim of his group is to achieve a real political change in the country – not no replace the current regim with ”another ruled by remote control”, he says.
