SYRIA government yesterday welcome the final communique issued by the action group meeting on Syria after its meeting last Saturday, its foreign ministry said.
Syria welcomes the final communique, particularly the “ essential points that talked about committing to Syria’s sovereignty and independence… in addition to calling for halting the violence… and not militarise the crisis,” the ministry said in a statement yesterday.
The ministry, however, said there are a few vague points in the statement that need clarification, stopping short of specifying those points.
It renewed the country’s commitment to the six-point peace plan of United Nations (UN)-Arab League joint special envoy, Kofi Annan.
It noted that Syria is ready to embark on a national dialogue with all parties in order to reach a consensus on a programme to end the crisis, emanating from the concept that the Syrian people make the decisions to build its future.
An action group comprising of some world powers met Saturday in Geneva and agreed that a transitional government should be set up in Syria to end the 16-month-long conflict but did not stipulate the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.
