(Worthy News) - Russia said Tuesday it supports the inclusion of all opposition parties in Syrian peace talks, including representatives of two hard-line Islamic groups, as President Bashar Assad's troops captured a village north of Syria's largest city with the aid of Russian airstrikes.
Syria’s official SANA news agency reported the capture of Hardatneen, north of Aleppo, as UN envoy Staffan de Mistura kicked off what he called a second day of peace talks in Geneva by hosting a government delegation for the second time since Friday. He said he would meet with the main opposition group later in the day.
But opposition figures said they had no scheduled meeting with de Mistura on Tuesday, and condemned what one member called the “crazy escalation” by Syrian and Russian forces around Aleppo. [ Source ]
