CAIRO, March 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and the League of Arab States (LAS) have approved a five-point position on the situation in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“We approved a joint position of five points. First, to stop violence wherever it comes from. Second, to create an impartial and free monitoring mechanism. Third, no external interference. Fourth, unhindered delivery of humanitarian aid to all Syrians. Fifth, first support for [I.S. and LAS Special Envoy] Kofi Annan’s mission in order to start political dialogue between the government and all opposition groups,” Lavrov said after talks with his LAS counterparts in Cairo on Saturday, March 9.
“We think that these points are of principle importance. First of all, they send a rather clear signal to all Syrian sides. And second, we believe that it is important to confirm support for Kofi Annan’s efforts and hope that his mission will bear fruit,” Lavrov said.
