Video - Jabhat Al-Nusra Leader Abu Muhammad Al-Joulani: Participating in Riyadh Talks Constitutes High Treason.
In an interview with the Syrian opposition Orient News TV, Jabhat Al-Nusra Leader Abu Muhammad Al-Joulani said: "(The Riyadh conference) constitutes high treason against the youth who shed their blood and sacrificed their lives."
He rejected the demand for his faction to disconnect from Al-Qaeda, saying that it was not Jabhat Al-Nusra's link to Al-Qaeda that prevented the toppling of the Al-Assad regime.
Al-Joulani further said that he was confident that the Al-Assad regime was "on the verge of collapse." The interview aired on the Syrian opposition Orient News TV on December 12, 2015.
