MOSCOW, May 30 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s position on Syria will not change, Dmitry Peskov, President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary told Itar-Tass in the run-up to the first series of foreign visits Putin is going to make after the inauguration.
The list of countries hes is going to visit includes France and Germany.
“It’s scarcely possible to speak about any concessions that Russia will allegedly make under pressure,” Peskov said when a reporter asked him on whether or not Putin might be ready to discuss the Syrian problem with Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande.
“Russia’s foreign policy in general and on Syria in particular is absolutely open, persistent and well-balanced,” Peskov said.
