MOSCOW, June 24 (Itar-Tass) - The Friends of Syria Group’s decision to supply weapons to the opposition run counters the political settlement, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
Commenting the Friends of Syria Group meeting in Doha on June 21, the Russian ministry said, “Such reports from Doha can only arouse serious concern.”
“It is obvious that additional weapons supplies, which can, finally, fall in the hands of terrorists, are capable of spurring the use of force in Syria,” the ministry said.
The Friends of Syria Group met within the restricted format with the participation of the foreign ministers from 11 countries, including the United States, Britain, France and several countries of the region. The meeting decided to start immediate weapons supplies to the opposition in Syria.
