BEIJING, June 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia urges to have a special international meeting on the situation in Syria to talk the conflicting parties into stopping violence and getting down to the negotiating table, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said here on Wednesday.
“We find it essentially important to fulfil Kofi Annan’s peace plan and the UN Security Council resolution, which approved this plan, and we find it necessary to convene a meeting of the countries, which influence really various opposition groups,” the Russian foreign minister said. “There are no many of them,” Lavrov noted, adding that the Russian initiative concerns the permanent members of the UN Security Council, leading regional countries, particularly Turkey and Iran, as well as the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. “The European Union can make its contribution,” the minister added.
“This meeting in contrast to the meetings of the so-called Group of Syrian Friends, which were devoted to the support for only the Syrian National Council, was that at the first stage without Syrians all foreign players will agree to fulfil Kofi Annan’s peace plan fairly and without double standards ,” Lavrov noted. He added that Moscow and Beijing find the appeals to foreign interference as the way to a catastrophe.
