MOSCOW, November 17 (Itar-Tass) — The events in Syria resemble the real civil war, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.
“The LAS initiative of November 2 [we supported this initiative] contains several components. The first point is that it is necessary to stop violence whatsoever it came from. It is important because violence in Syria comes not only from government structures,” the minister said.
“Today I’ve watched television commentaries saying a new force – the Liberated Syrian Army – organised attacks on government buildings, i.e. the buildings owned to the Syrian Armed Forces. This resembles the real civil war,” Lavrov noted.
“The LAS position on the need to cease violence whatsoever it came from requires details and concrete facts. In order to realise the Arab initiative we call on all interested parties to demand the Syrian authorities and the opposition stop violence. This should be done on behalf of the LAS and on behalf of the countries where the opposition works,” Lavrov stressed.
