Your Task: Implementation Only...

The debate over the upcoming round of the Geneva negotiations over the Syrian crisis is becoming serious once again, in the context of the ongoing preparations for the resumption of these negotiations on the 28th of this month, as the international envoy announced.

Besiege Your Siege

The declaration of breaking the siege imposed on Deir al-Zour represents a new phase in the history of the Syrian crisis. Most analyses and readings of the event indicate that it is a continuation of the series of field defeats of Daesh [ISIS] terrorist organization. In addition, this event consolidates the appropriate atmosphere for a new advance on the path of the political process, and push it to the stage of direct negotiations between the regime and the opposition, especially as the process goes in parallel with expansion of the de-escalation zones.

The Reasons for not Joining, and What's Next..?!

1- The decision by the Syrian Opposition Change and Liberation Front of not taking part is circumstantial, and has to do with the Riyadh group domination over the formation of the Syrian opposition delegation to Geneva.

This comes as a protest against the conduct of the UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, that gives special advantages to the Riyadh platform, enabling it from controlling the opposition delegation, despite its Feb 11 statement that violates the UNSCR 2254, and despite its well known positions during the previous rounds, all resulting in blowing up every effort to reach a political solution.
