Syrian opposition factions leave Sochi talks and traveled back to Turkey

Syrian opposition factions leave Sochi talks and traveled back to Turkey
The Sochi talks sponsored by Russia to discuss the Syrian crisis began on Tuesday after a one day delay due to Syrian opposition factions boycotting the event.

The conference, which was originally billed as a two-day event got underway as a one-day event.

An Al Arabiya reporter said on Tuesday that a convoy of opposition factions who are active in northern Syria withdrew from the talks and traveled back to Turkey.

“Our factions received promises and political and logistical agreements prior to Russia,” one of the factions’ representatives told our reporter. “We have not seen any of this in reality since we arrived to Sochi airport.”

The Syrian regime slogans and flag were seen at the venue as well, which cause the conference to have a rocky start as some delegates opposed to President Bashar al-Assad refused to leave the airport on arrival, saying they were offended by the presence of the Syrian state's flag and emblem.

The military opposition asked for the Syrian revolution flag to be hung next to the regime's flag, which did not happen.
