MOSCOW, September 4 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and Venezuela uphold the actions taken by U.N./LAS Special Envoy for the Middle East Lakhdar Brahimi to settle the crisis in Syria, the Foreign Ministry reported.
The ministry commented on Wednesday’s telephone conversation between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Venezuelan counterpart Elias Jaua.
“The foreign ministers of both countries discussed the situation in Syria. They backed the actions by U.N./LAS Special Envoy and called for searching for the peaceful resolution of the armed conflict,” the report says.
“Elias Jaua riveted Russia’s attention to a statement made by the Union of South American Nations of August 30. Its members condemn any attempts to interfere into Syria’s internal affairs,” the report says.
