ASHGABAT, May 30 (Itar-Tass) — One cannot take decisions on military operations in Syria by being guided by the only emotions, Russian First Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Denisov said.
Commenting on a statement by French President Francois Hollande saying the military operation in Syria by the Western coalition is possible and Moscow and Beijing are the major obstacles for imposing tough sanctions against the Bashar al-Assad regime, Denisov said, “Any statements should be interpreted seriously.”
“One cannot lose cold reason. The key task is that it is necessary to really imagine what has happened in Syria. There is a medical term, ‘do no harm’ and it is time to remember about it,” the Russian diplomat stressed.
“Foreign interference will only prove more political emotions than reason and analysis,” Denisov said. In his words, “in such cases we should ask: ‘What then?’”
