Interview with Al-Hayat Newspaper, London, United Kingdom.
“Security Council Resolution 2254 represents a step-back … negotiations are our strategic choice” – Dr. Riad Hijab
In the light of Resolution 2254 which was passed by the Security Council on 18 December 2015 representing a step-back from previous international positions, and appeasing the Assad regime and its allies; Dr. Riad Hijab, Syria’s former Prime Minister and General Coordinator of the High Negotiations Committee answers some of our questions, and talks of a way forward.
Hijab is looking to reclaim for the Syrian people the national initiative through 3 channels; humanitarian, political and military. The biggest challenge, he told us, was a public realisation that the Assad regime no longer has any part to play in this politically strategic equation.
