Two Syrian opposition blocs meeting in Cairo on Tuesday (August 16th) called for the resumption of negotiations among Syrian political groups until a diplomatic solution to the conflict can be finalised, Egypt's Ahram Online reported.

During a joint meeting, Cario-based al-Ghad al-Souri (Tomorrow’s Syria) and the National Co-ordination Body for Democratic Change called for the resumption of negotiations, said al-Ghad al-Souri spokesman Ali al-Assi.

Al-Assi said the two political blocs stressed that the diplomatic process should continue "without preconditions" from any of the involved actors and according to the Geneva conference and relevant international resolutions.

The National Co-ordination Body, headed by Ismail Abdel-Azim, and al-Ghad al-Souri, chaired by Ahmed al-Jarba, former president of the Syrian National Coalition, discussed the "risks threatening Syria's unity and territorial sovereignty".

The two delegations called on all Arab states to support the democratic change in Syria to "achieve the aspirations the Syrian people for freedom, dignity and social justice".

Both delegations stressed that the fight against "terrorism and extremism" and "commitment to the political solution" are two "indispensable necessities", calling on parties involved to "work hard to unify their efforts and visions".
