MOSCOW, November 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russia took a fair position protecting Syria from foreign interference, Syrian Ambassador to Moscow Riyad Haddad told a Friday press conference.
He said that the Russian position impeded the use of the UN Security Council for certain moves of the West.
The reforms in Syria are relatively quick, the diplomat said. Important steps have been taken: the work on the Law on Parties is underway, the new parliament will be elected in February 2012, a commission has been formed to review the constitution, and there is a commission for the national dialog, he said.
The reforms are on schedule, but Syria also has to protect its people from terrorists who are not interested in the reforms, Haddad said.
