LONDON, May 27 (Itar-Tass) —— British Foreign Secretary William Jefferson Hague said on Sunday he would try to convince Russia of the need to put pressure on Syrian authorities during the upcoming working visit to Moscow.
The visit is due on May 28; Hague will have negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
He microblogged on the Twitter they would urge Russia to put rapid and definite influence on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The secretary said that a civil war in Syria would not need the interests of Russia or anyone else. Time for accepting and fulfilling the peace plan of Kofi Annan is running out for Syria.
Hague said he did not believe assurances of Syrian authorities that they were not engaged in the al-Holeh tragedy. That is the well-known tactics of the as-Asad regime, which accuses others for the developments in the country in order to avoid responsibility, he said.
