The head of the High Negotiations Committee Nasr al-Hariri has described the political process in Syria as a subject of “ridicule and mockery among Syrians,” against the backdrop of the bombardment the towns and cities northern Syria are currently witnessing.
During an interview with the Al-Arabiya Al-Hadath channel, he announced that there was currently no political process in Syria. He said that the United Nations should recognize and declare this fact, especially in light of the ongoing killings targeting the Syrian people.
The Syrian opposition leader denied that it was possible to begin a political process in light of the current conditions and said that the political process, “has been destroyed completely or halted for the foreseeable future.” Hariri said that the Syrian regime did not want a political process.
He also denied that Russia was backing any political solution, saying that, “it is primarily supporting the regime and the crimes it is carrying out against the Syrian people,” as he put it.
