MOSCOW, December 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Syria’s Vice-President Farouk al-Sharaa will meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday to discuss ways for a peaceful settlement of the conflict in his country.
Lavrov has numerously stated Russian opposition to any sanctions against Syria as they rarely yield result. Moscow also made it clear it was against any foreign military interference in Syria and urged Damascus to accept international monitors as soon as possible.
“We display decisiveness in everyday contacts with the government and other representatives of the Syrian regime and in our periodic but regular contacts with the Syrian opposition,” Lavrov said.
Four delegations of Syrian opposition have visited Russia of late and the fifth is coming. It will be headed by one of the opposition leaders, Hasan Abdel Azim.
