DAMASCUS, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- The oppositional Syrian National Coalition (SNC) rejected on Monday a communique proposed by the Syrian government delegation to the Geneva II conference, which largely focused on preserving Syria's sovereignty, the official SANA news agency reported.
The communique affirms respecting Syria's sovereignty, restoring its usurped lands, preserving its establishments, and abandoning all forms of extremism, fanaticism and radical ideas, SANA said, adding the delegation of the Western-backed SNC has rejected it.
The communique also opposes all forms of interference, and underscores the Syrians' rights to decide their country's future through democratic methods.
It stresses that the Syrian people alone have the right to choose their political system away from any imposed formula, calling on all countries to prevent supplying weapons, training or harboring terrorists or inciting violent acts in Syria.
Citing sources inside the Syrian official delegation, SANA said the delegation was and still open to discuss all points.
The coalition has reportedly rejected the communique because, according to their interpretation, it aims at preserving Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
