MOSCOW, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. President Barack Obama is highly unlikely to step back in the Syrian problem, so a local strike is quite possible, according to Oleg Peresypkin, the head of the Middle East Centre of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Academy.

“It is next to impossible for Obama step back,” he said on Tuesday. “So, I do not rule out the possibility of a local conflict, that a number of missiles would be fired.”

“But the world community must do its best to prevent a big conflict,” he stressed.

He positively assessed the idea of sending Russian lawmakers to the United States to try to find a way out of the Syrian crisis. But, in his words, “this idea might turn out to be belated.” He also said similar delegations could be sent to France, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Israel.
