The idea of appointing five deputies for Syrian President Bashar Assad will be dicussed on the next round of talks on the Syrian settlement in Geneva.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The idea of appointing five deputies for Syrian President Bashar Assad will be on the agenda of the next round of talks on the Syrian settlement in Geneva, leader of the Moscow opposition platform Qadri Jamil told Sputnik on Friday.

"The candidates are not being agreed upon for now, as there is still no agreement between the opposition and the government. The talks are ongoing, and will continue in Geneva," Jamil said.

The latest round of intra-Syrian talks took place in Geneva on April 13-27. The Moscow-Cairo group, particularly its Moscow platform led by Qadri Jamil, proposed the idea of appointing several deputies for Syrian President Bashar Assad, and delegating his full powers to them.
