PETERHOF, September 6 (Itar-Tass) - During the supper of the leaders of G20 countrries here early Friday, the divergence of view about ways to settle the Syrian conflict was confirmed, with the number of supporters and opponents of precipitate actions divided approximately equally, RF presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

A number of countries were upholding the viewpoint on the need to take precipitate meausers, irrespective of any legitimate international bodies. A whole lot of other countries were calling on those present not to devalue international law, and were urging them to keep it in mind that only the UN Security Council has the right to take a decision on use of force," Peskov said.
