MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) — New amendments to the Syrian Constitution are not a prerogative of external forces, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.
Summing up the results of the talks with Myanmar’s Foreign Minister Wunna Maung Lwin, Lavrov said, “A referendum on a new constitution is a move towards democracy. The end to a monopoly of one party should be lauded.”
At the same time, the Russian minister said additional amendments to the Syrian Constitution “is not the matter of external players. This is the matter of Syrians themselves”.
