Syria opposition meets in Cairo

Exiled opposition groups tried to forge a common vision for a transition in Syria as they met in Cairo.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay also charged that weapons supplied to the government and opposition are escalating the conflict, warning that ‘further militarisation’ must be avoided.

She spoke on Monday as at least 30 people were reportedly killed in new bloodshed across Syria.

Meanwhile, members of Syria’s opposition met behind closed doors in Cairo to chart a common vision after criticising a blueprint for transition agreed by the major powers at the weekend.

Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi, who chaired the two-day meeting attended by around 250 opposition figures, urged the factions ‘not to waste this opportunity’ and to ‘unite’.

Arabi also stressed the need for ‘a pluralist democratic system that does not discriminate between Syrians’.

Nasser al-Qudwa, deputy to UN-Arab League peace envoy Kofi Annan, echoed Arabi’s call, telling the opposition to ‘unify your vision and your performance’.
