Russia creating 'new Hitler' in Syria, opposition warns

World Bulletin / News Desk

Syria's main opposition group accused Damascus-allyRussia Monday of helping to turn Syrian President Bashar al-Assad into a "new Hitler" by supporting his forces in the war-ravaged country.

"Russian regime will create a new Hitler. We are suffering from a Hitler in Syria," said High Negotiations Committee spokesman Salem al-Meslet after the group's first formal talks with UN envoy Staffan de Mistura in Geneva.

The opposition group also vowed it will "strive to join the political process" on ending the country's civil war, a spokesman said after receiving "positive messages" from the UN special envoy.

"We will strive to join the political process," Salem al-Meslet said after a first formal meeting between UN envoy Staffan de Mistura and the High Negotiations Committee in Geneva. 

"We came here to discuss with the special envoy UN resolution 2254 lifting the sieges and stopping the crimes done by Russian air strikes in Syria, and I believe we received positive messages," he said.

The opposition delegation has insisted it will not formally join peace talks until those humanitarian demands are met. 

Meslet said the HNC was waiting to hear more from de Mistura after his meeting with the government delegation Tuesday.
