GENEVA, September 14 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian-American agreements reached in Geneva on Saturday, September 14, will help avoid the use of force against Syria, which would have been disastrous, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
“With the good will, clear instructions from the heads of state and friendly inter-departmental work, Russia and the United States can achieve results in moving towards resolution of key problems of the modern world, including the threat of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction,” Lavrov said.
He noted that “the successful implementation of these agreements will be important not only in terms of fulfilling the general task of eliminating all chemical weapons stocks but also in terms of helping avoid the military scenario, which, without any exaggeration, would have been disastrous for that regions and international relations in general.”
“John Kerry and I clearly reaffirmed our commitment to a peaceful settlement of the crisis in Syria,” Lavrov said.
