MOSCOW, February 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The West does not have a clear concept of a peacekeeping force in Syria, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov wrote in his Twitter micro-blog on Friday.
“Conversations with Western diplomats show that they have no clear vision of the concept of the eventual international peacekeeping force in Syria,” he wrote.
Gatilov commented on the Vienna meeting of the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his French counterpart Alain Juppe on Thursday. “The League of Arab States (LAS) proposes to form a joint mission of the League and the UN and to send it to Syria with the goal of stabilization. Yet no particular steps have been taken. The project is undergoing the stage of an initial discussion,” he said.
