MOSCOW, April 18 (Itar-Tass) — The U.N. Commission recognised that the Syrian opposition was responsible for serious violations of human rights in the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Wednesday.
“The U.N. Commission recognised that the opposition in Syria was responsible for serious violations of human rights in the republic,” Gatilov wrote in his Twitter blog.
Earlier, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the armed opposition in Syria was trying to organise provocations in order to wreck reconciliation in the country.
“Recently mass media reports have proved that the armed opposition is making attempts to organise provocations in order to wreck reconciliation,” Lavrov said.
“Some people want the Kofi Annan plan to fail and other variants, including military means, to be used,” the Russian minister added.
“We reiterate that those who have an impact on the armed Syrian opposition benefit the Syrian people,” Lavrov noted. “Certain opposition forces, in particular the Syrian National Council, have not officially agreed with the Annan plan,” the minister stressed.
