Published: Updated:

The supreme body of the Syrian Opposition is holding intensive meetings in Riyadh on Friday and Saturday, to discuss the agenda for the next round of the Geneva peace talks due on March 23.

Further meetings with the negotiating team will take place on Sunday and Monday.

The political body of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces is studying the channels of negotiations in Geneva with Members of the Supreme Commission for negotiations, the negotiating team and advisors and media delegations.

In a statement to Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, Fouad Alikou, member of the supreme commission for negotiations, stressed the importance of classifying the peace solutions in the three files: the political transition, the constitution and the elections, with no refusal to seek the cause of terrorism.

Alikou was of the opinion that the success rate of the next round was very small to non-existent.
