ST PETERSBURG, June 20 (Itar-Tass) - The contract on the Russian S-300 supplies to Syria has not been realised in full, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Rossiya-24 TV Channel on Thursday.
“We’re fulfilling all our contracts. Till now the contract has not been realised in full,” Lavrov said.
Lavrov also said that Western partners are unsure they would be able to convince Syrian opposition to participate in Geneva-2.
"As for the timing / of the conference / we offer such terms that it would be possible to determine any particular purpose, but Western partners have asked not to do it," said the Minister. According to Lavrov, they've settled on the phrase "in the near future." This, according to Lavrov, is due to the fact that the Western partners do not believe in their ability to "prevail upon" the opposition to take part in the conference.
