MOSCOW, April 3 (Itar-Tass) — A protest against the “Friends of Syria” group staged by Syrians in Istanbul, where it was had been dispersed by police, demonstrated that not all Syrian people consider this group their “friend,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday.
“Syria’s authorities are ready to fulfil Kofi Annan’s plan to end violence, while the “Friends of Syria” group’s decision to tighten sanctions does not lead to this,” he said.
Earlier Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the meeting of the “Friends of Syria” group in Istanbul cannot be considered as a substitution for the UN Security Council.
“UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan himself is responsible for his plan, and it is the UN Security Council that will assess his mission,” he said.
