MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - The US statements suggesting that the Syrian government is not ready to take part in the “Geneva 2” meeting without preconditions are turning everything “upside down,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told journalists on Friday.
According to him, it is the opposition that is not ready. “The United States pledged it would seek the consent of the opposition, so we hope that it will carry out the pledge,” Lukashevich said.
Russia proceeds from the assumption that “the government and opposition of Syria at the Geneva 2 meeting should agree on the methods of joint fight against terrorists,” the diplomat stressed.
