MOSCOW, March 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russia expressed concern over the West’s lack of political will on the Syrian issue, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Tuesday.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will discuss the issue at the Arab League’s ministerial meeting in Cairo on March 10.
“We believe that any problems can be resolved if those who have influence in the country, in particular, those who exert influence on the opposition show their political will,” Ryabkov said. “It is necessary not to say, that it is too late, but to take actions, not to be too late.”
“We are concerned with the lack of political will,” he said.
