PIONERSKY, Kaliningrad region, June 6 (Itar-Tass) - The international community should determine: it is with those who wants to change power in Syria by violence or with those who are ready to solve the problem by talks, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Lavrov said, “The situation in Syria arouses serious concern and none can be satisfied with it, primarily because peaceful civilians continue to die and because the situation starts to have a negative impact on the situation in the whole region.”
Russia wants “all problems to be discussed in a single package to make the international community not to narrow down its view and not concentrate on an immediate task: to overthrow one leader and then replace him by another and ignore the consequences”, Lavrov stressed.
“Now one realise that it is necessary to determine with whom the international community is - with those who wants to change power in Syria by violence or with those who are ready to solve the problem by talks,” Lavrov pointed out.
