NEW YORK, July 25 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin has flatly denied Western media allegations that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was waiting for instructions from Moscow.
The diplomat said it was a delusion to believe that President al-Assad was sitting and waiting for a call from Moscow to get instructions what to do next. “This is not so,” Churkin said in an interview with the U.S. television company PBS.
Churin said Bashar al-Assad was not thinking of stepping down but if it came to this, it could only aggravate the situation because he’s likely to be replaced by someone from his entourage who will pursue a tougher line.
Churkin also said that the Syrian opposition’s refusal to conduct dialogue with the government could drag the conflict for years.
