MOSCOW, June 19 (Itar-Tass) - The final G-8 communique on Syria provides the good foundation for continuing talks on the peaceful settlement in the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told Itar-Tass.
“The G-8 summiteers confirmed that the Geneva communique is the base of the peaceful process in Syria. The talks should be held in compliance with the communique.” “I consider this an important conclusion,” the Russian diplomat said.
“One more important moment is that the G-8 communique said all decisions should be taken on the parties’ unanimous consent.” “It is important that the document urges the parties to participate in the process seriously and constructively,” Gatilov said.
“It is also important that the G-8 summiteers voice serious concern over the growth of extremism and terrorism in Syria. They urge the Syrian authorities and the opposition to join efforts aimed at countering terrorism from Al Qaeda and expelling all organisations and persons from Syria related to it,” the Russian diplomat stressed.
Totally, the G-8 communique “is a good foundation for continuing diplomatic talks on Syria”, he added.
