MOSCOW, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - Russia took a conciliatory attitude between Syria and the United States, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyadh Haddad said on Tuesday.
“If Russia said it would join Syria in any confrontation the world would gasp at the danger of a new world war. Who will stop Moscow and Washington? Thus, Russia has taken a conciliatory position between the United States and Syria,” the Syrian ambassador said.
“Moscow told Damascus it would be always with those who opposed the aggression by relying on international law. This position allows us to eliminate the consequences of the conflict before they pose a threat to security and stability of the whole region,” Haddad said.
Russia will exert maximum effort to prevent a military scenario in Syria, stated the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for the Middle East resolution, Sergei Vershinin.
“We believe that as long as time is it is necessary to talk and act. Our parliamentarians seek to go to the United States. Every day will be devoted to doing everything possible to prevent the negative scenario,” Vershinin said.
“We come against the military scenario in compliance with the norms of international law,” he added.
