YEREVAN, April 2 (Itar-Tass) — Bashar al-Assad’s reforms are not always far-reaching, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Speaking at Yerevan State University on Monday, Lavrov said the reforms could become far-reaching only in dialogue that the Syrian opposition rejected.
“Of course, the Syrian government is late to carry out reforms. They are not always far-reaching,” the Russian minister said.
“They [reforms] can become far-reaching only in dialogue that the opposition refused to hold,” he added.
“Calls from outside for giving up the dialogue do not help until Bashar al-Assad is in power,” Lavrov stressed.
