MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — The way Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and the Foreign Intelligence Service Director Mikhail Fradkov were welcomed in Syria confirms that the people of the country support Russia’s position, Iranian Ambassador to Russia Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi said at a press conference in Moscow on Wednesday.
“I do not think that Syria is facing a force scenario,” the diplomat said. “Reforms are carried out in Syria, and Russia and China are displaying a balanced approach to the process.”
“Russia proved that our world is not unipolar, it is impossible to obey the single will of the United States,” the head of the Iranian diplomatic mission said. “The way Lavrov and Fradkov were welcomed in Syria testifies to the fact that the people of the country support the position of Russia.” “The situation in Syria can return to normal,” Sajjadi is certain. “Movement in this direction has already begun.”
On Tuesday Lavrov and Fradkov visited the Syrian capital following the instruction of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to meet with President Bashar al-Assad. Old men, students and children took to the streets of Damascus carrying Russian flags and balloons to welcome a delegation from Moscow.
