MOSCOW, February 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia vetoed a Syria resolution in the U.N. Security Council because it sought to prevent certain countries in and outside that region to use this document for external interference in Syria’s internal affairs, President Dmitry Medvedev said during telephone conversations with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran on Wednesday, February 22.
Medvedev stressed the need to facilitate a comprehensive dialogue with all sides in Syria and cautioned that actions discouraging such dialogue will lead to a civil war and more casualties, the presidential press service said.
In his telephone conversations with King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, Medvedev placed the emphasis on the need to use both bilateral and multilateral international formats for facilitating the speediest restoration of peace and stability in Syria.
