Syrian HNC boycott Syria Peace Talks in Sochi: Twitter

CAIRO (Reuters) - Syrian High Negotiations Committee (HNC) will boycott Syria Peace Congress to be held in the Russian city of Sochi this month, HNC said in a tweet posted on its official Twitter account.

Western powers and some Arab states believe Sochi is an attempt to create a parallel political track that would undermine the United Nations and lay groundwork for a solution more suitable to the Damascus government and its allies.
