Moscow, SANA

Russian President’s Special Envoy, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said Wednesday his country has sent nearly 30 invitations to “the Syrian opposition” to take part in Moscow Conference on the crisis in Syria, expected from January 26th to 29th.

“Invitations have been sent, and we might send extra invitations to the Syrian opposition to participate in Moscow conference… They still have time to think as every person is free to take a decision he sees fit,” Bogdanov told journalists.

He added it is useful that they talk to each other, and the most important thing is to talk with representatives of the Syrian government and start any political dialogue that leads to a shift in the political work, hoping the external opposition would accept the invitation of Moscow.

On whether there are any pressures exerted on the opposition by external powers or not, Bogdanov denied any information about that.
