Moscow, SANA – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Russia is committed to making an inter-Syrian dialogue succeed based on Geneva 1 Communiqué and without any foreign interference.
He was addressing the participants in the second round of Moscow-brokered consultative talks between the delegation of the Syrian government and figures of the opposition, after the first round of talks were held on January 26-29.
He said that the challenges facing Syria are big and need united efforts to be solved, calling for putting aside differences for the sake of serving the Syrian people’s interest, preserving Syria’s unity and combating terrorism.
Lavrov slammed some countries for providing terrorists with what they call “non-lethal” weapons, saying this has led to terrorism getting bolstered and expanding and spreading over large areas.
He pledged that Russia will continue its efforts in favor of re-establishing peace in Syria, welcoming all constructive efforts made by Moscow’s international and regional partners for the sake of Syria and its people.
Those efforts, he reiterated, should be based on Geneva 1 Communiqué without any covert geopolitical agenda and double standards.
