BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists that the negotiations for the Idlib de-escalation zone may be decided during the next Astana meeting in mid-September, speaking at a joint press conference with his Saudi counterpart Adel Al-Jubeir, Jeddah, Sunday.

“We actively support the effort of our Saudi partners in unifying different groups of the opposition – Riyadh, Moscow, Cairo – and creating a single negotiating team for talks in Geneva,” stated Lavrov. The Russian minister underlined that the de-escalation zones agreement should “be in effect for six months”.

Al-Jubeir commented on the Qatar crisis, saying that it should follow “all applied principals of all the other countries in the world”, in not financing terrorism, not spreading extremism and hate, and others.

“We have taken some measures and we will continue to do so, until Qatar responds to international community’s will, by refraining of supporting and financing terrorism,” underlined he.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
