MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - An international conference on the settlement in Syria may be held no earlier than in autumn, though “it should have been held a year ago,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told reporters on Tuesday.

“The timeframe of the conference mainly depends from the opposition, which will meet on July 4-5, after that the Holy Month of Ramadan will begin,” he explained.

“The most important thing (for the preparation to the conference) is the readiness of the opposition, this is the main obstacle that hampers to set a date for it,” the deputy foreign minister noted.

Meanwhile, Bogdanov noted that “the point is not in the timeframe, this is a secondary issue, the issues of participation of the Syrian opposition in the conference are at the forefront.”

To the suggestion of the journalists whether it will be late to hold a conference in autumn, Bogdanov noted that “certainly this should have been done a year ago.”
