MOSCOW, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - A military strike on Syria will be wrong and will affect the whole system of international relations, envoy of the Russian foreign minister for Middle East settlement Sergei Vershinin said in the Russian Public Chamber on Tuesday.
“The situation is hard and emergency. A real threat of the use of force exists,” he said. “Our position is decisive unacceptance of this method,” Vershinin noted.
Moscow believes the use of force against Syria will produce only a reverse effect, he added.
“The use of force will yield only a reverse effect,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry envoy for the Middle East settlement Sergei Vershinin said.
“The political settlement is inevitable. The war will cross out the political settlement. It is necessary to settle the conflict by political means and Syrians themselves should do it by dialogue,” the Russian diplomat said.
“The strike on Syria will be illegal and this has an impact on international relations. The situation is grave. There is a real danger of using force. Our position is to give up this method,” he said.
Vershinin said Russia came against solving any problem by force.
