Assad: Government Ready to Grant Amnesty to Militants, Ready to Take Part in Astana Talks
TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in an interview with French media that members of anti-government militant groups will have a chance to take advantage of the amnesty offered by the Syrian government.

"From what we’ve been implementing during the last three years, because you want genuinely to have peace in Syria, the government offered amnesty for every militant who gives up his armaments, and it worked, and they still have the same option if they want to go back to their normality and to go back to their normal life," Assad said adding that "this is the maximum that you can offer, amnesty", SANA reported.

He also confirmed his readiness to send an official delegation to the capital of Kazakhstan "when they set the time of that conference."

"We are ready to negotiate everything. When you talk about negotiations regarding whether to end the conflict in Syria or talking about the future of Syria, it’s fully open, there’s no limit for that negotiations," the Syrian president stated.

However, according to him, it is still unknown "who is going to be there from the other side."

"Is it going to be real Syrian opposition - and when I say ‘real’ it means it has grassroots in Syria, not Saudi one or French one or British one, it should be Syrian opposition to discuss the Syrian issues," Bashar al-Assad noted.

"So, the viability or, let’s say, the success of that conference will depend on that point," the Syrian president  concluded.
