MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow notes more realism in Russia’s Western partners’ attitude towards Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
“In these latter days Moscow notes certain changes in our Western partners’ attitude towards Syria. But it is insufficient to overcome the deadlock,” the ministry said.
“Russia continues to strive for the peaceful settlement of the conflict in Syria. We demand an immediate end to any violence. It is necessary to meet humanitarian needs of peaceful civilians. We are exerting energetic diplomatic effort by strengthening contacts with the League of Arab States and the United Nations Organisation, as well as bilateral cooperation,” the ministry said.
