MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow hopes that the truce declared on the occasion of the Moslem holiday in Syria will be observed, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov declared after talks with his Swiss counterpart Didier Burkhalter on Thursday.
"We have discussed the situation in the Near East and expressed mutual concern over the situation which developed in Syria. The crisis might have only one political settlement," Lavrov stressed.
A possibility of overcoming the crisis with minimal losses depends on how soon the violence will end there and a dialogue without any preliminary conditions begins, Lavrov said.
