MOSCOW, December 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia is not worried over the fate of the Assad regime in Syria but is worried over the future of that country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a big news conference on Thursday.
“We are not concerned over the fate of the Assad regime. Syria is ripe for changes,” he stressed.
According to Putin, Russia is worried over future developments in Syria. “We do not want to see the opposition, after coming to power, start fighting against the [current] authorities that will go into opposition,” he said and stressed Russia stood for a solution that would stop the ongoing civil war in Syria. First, according to the Russian president, they should agree “how they are going to live further and only then change the existing order, not the other way round – to ruin everything and then see what to do.”
