MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The next round of Syrian proximity talks in Geneva should be held in August and this round has no other options but to succeed, leader of the Syrian Moscow-Cairo opposition platform Qadri Jamil told Sputnik.
"There is an urgent need to start the third round of talks in Geneva as soon as possible, during August. This round has to take place and should be successful. It should be a final round, and there is no other option – the failure is impossible, because the fate of the Syrian people and the Syrian crisis hinge on these talks," Jamil said.
He stressed that the sides participating in the talks should realize the responsibility they bear and finally sit down to the negotiating table.
"If the talks do not take place or are not successful, this will fail the entire negotiating process that has been held in Geneva, and it will be hard to restore it from scratch. That would be a great damage for the Syrian people," Jamil said.
