MOSCOW, March 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Any progress occurring on the Syrian track is held back immediately, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the radio Kommersant FM on Tuesday.
“That happened to the observers sent by the League of Arab States. They were not allowed to work for even a month, and the League did not wait for the discussion of their report in New York. The League recalled its monitors and ended the mission, although it started working towards lull and at least supplied facts, which showed that not only governmental forces but also militants were doing impermissible things,” he said.
Lavrov recalled the Cairo meeting with the LAS foreign ministers. “We approved five settlement principles, including the absence of any external interference. Several hours after, a colleague who took part in the negotiations – the head of the LAS Committee on Syria, the Qatari premier and foreign minister – said that it was necessary to send Arab or international troops to Syria. That was said several hours after he signed the principle of absence of any external interference,” Lavrov said.
