Chief Syria opposition negotiator quits

BEIRUT: The Syrian opposition’s chief negotiator in UN-brokered peace talks has announced his resignation, branding the stalled Geneva negotiations a failure on both the security and humanitarian fronts. “The three rounds of talks were unsuccessful because of the stubbornness of the regime and its continued bombardments and aggressions toward the Syrian people,” Mohammed Alloush, a member of the Saudi-backed rebel group Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam), said late Sunday in a statement on Twitter. He also condemned the international community’s “inability to enforce resolutions, in particular regarding humanitarian issues, (such as) the lifting of sieges, access to aid, the release of prisoners and adherence to the ceasefire.”
