MOSCOW, March 9 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has sent a message to King Mohammed VI of Morocco to declare impermissibility of armed interference in Syrian internal affairs and to call for the soonest end of violence in that country.
“We are glad that Russia and Morocco coordinate their efforts on the international scene, in particular, in the work towards the restoration of regional stability and security,” runs the message posted on the presidential website. “Since the beginning of the Arab Spring, we have been supporting the striving of Middle Eastern and North African peoples for socioeconomic modernization devoid of external pressure and based on the strict compliance with state sovereignty.”
“That is our unwavering position, the cornerstone of our approach to the settlement inside and around Syria. We are against external, even so armed, interference in Syrian internal affairs, no matter under which pretexts it may be taken. We continue to call for the end of violence in that country by all the parties to the conflict. We think there is no alternative to the peaceful settlement of the crisis and there is a need to start a broad national dialog without preconditions,” the message runs.
