MOSCOW - 21 November 2017: Riyad Hijab’s resignation as Chief Coordinator of the Syrian opposition’s High Negotiations Committee (HNC) and the retreating of other radical opposition leaders to the background will help bring together the opponents of the Syrian government on a constructive basis, Tass quoted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as saying on Tuesday.
Speaking at a press conference, Lavrov said he expected "the retreating of radical opposition leaders to the background to help the Syria-based and foreign-based opposition unite on a constructive basis."
"In the next couple of days, I will continue contacts with the State Department’s leadership, we will discuss all this (situation in Syria)," Lavrov told reporters.
