MOSCOW, September 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and China have declared that interference in the affairs of Syria would be impermissible, the Russian Foreign Ministry said after a meeting of Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and the Ambassador of China in Moscow Li Hui.
"As they discussed the situation in Syria, the diplomats reaffirmed the high-principled position of their states on the inadmissibility of external interference in Syrian affairs, the need for the complete cessation of all violence in that country, urgent steps to implement the political and socio-economic transformation, as well as establishment of a broad national dialogue in order to achieve the early restoration of civil peace and accord," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"There was an exchange of views on the situation in Libya and around it, in particular, the prospects of post-crisis revival of the country with active international support, primarily through the UN and its Security Council," the Foreign Ministry said.
