VIENNA, February 16 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said an idea of creating a U.N.-LAS mission to Syria was being discussed.
Commenting on the meetings between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his French counterpart Alain Juppe on the sidelines of the 3rd ministerial conference of the Paris Pact on Thursday, Gatilov said France confirmed its position on Syria.
“In France’s position, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should resign. The international community should take decisive measures in order to prevent violence and ensure stability in Syria,” the Russian deputy foreign minister explained.
“Russia said: we called for an immediate ceasure of violence by all parties and for commencement of the political process. In our view, it’s the political process that can be a vital basis for the political settlement in Syria,” Gatilov said.
In his words, at present, the Syrian problem is being discussed in New York. “An idea has been put forth to create a U.N.-LAS mission to be sent to Syria in order to stabilise the situation. But for now nothing concrete has happened because the idea is being discussed,” the high-ranking diplomat said.
