MOSCOW, March 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia does not intend to participate in a next meeting of the group of friends of Syria, Russian presidential envoy for the Middle East and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told a press briefing here on Friday.
“We did not participate in the previous meeting. We do not intend to participate in this meeting as well,” Bogdanov said. “The group of friends looks like the contact group for Libya,” the deputy foreign minister added.
Bogdanov noted that the group of friends is negotiating only with the Syrian opposition.
“It is unacceptable for us,” Bogdanov underlined.
