“We do not see any steps by Damascus that might be aimed at disrupting this initiative,” she said. “We maintain close contact with the Syrian officials on all tracks and tackle all issues in cooperation.”

“The Congress may prove an extra platform for establishing this dialogue among representatives of different ethnic and religious groups, including Kurds,” she said.

“No contradictions should be looked for here. We proceed from the assumption that only Syrians themselves are to shape their future.”
