MOSCOW, July 16 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow will insist the U.N. Supervision Mission in Syria extend its mandate, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Lavrov said, “It is inadmissible to use the U.N. Mission as a subsidiary silver coin.”
“What has happened in Syria is dreadful. People are dying. It is necessary to cease violence in Syria immediately. The warring parties must stop military actions and synchronize the withdrawal of heavy hardware from Syrian cities under the U.N. auspices,” the Russian foreign minister stressed.
