MOSCOW, August 21 (Itar-Tass) — There is a chance for Syrian settlement if all the foreign actors realize their responsibility, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after Tuesday negotiations with Syrian Vice-Premier Qadri Jamil.
“If everyone on whom the future of Syria and the Syrian people depends realizes one’s responsibility, there will be a chance for settlement,” he said. There are many adversaries of the Geneva accords outside of Syria, the minister added.
Moscow is confident that the Geneva agreements remain topical, Lavrov said. He recalled an initiative of the opposition National Coordination Committee with regard to the Syrian settlement, which had a lot in common with the Geneva Communique.
The fact the initiative runs on the Geneva track “is inspiring; this is a chance for moving on,” Lavrov said.
