BEIRUT, September 15 (Itar-Tass) - The Russia-U.S. agreements on Syria’s chemical weapons pave the way for the victory of the Syrian people, Syria’s Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil said on Sunday.
“First of all, we credit Russia for its position when it prevented the use of military force against Syria,” he said at a meeting of leaders of the Syrian People’s Will Party. “The attempt of the United States and the West to use chemical weapons as a pretext to interfere into Syria’s affairs has failed.”
Jamil is the leader of Syria’s opposition Popular Front for Change and Liberation, whose representatives are members of the government. “From the very beginning we have been supporting the idea of peaceful conference in Geneva and have been considering it as the only way out of the crisis, which will give an impetus to a political process under the leadership of the Syrian people and a dialogue between all political forces,” the Syria Al Aan agency quotes his as saying.
Another representative of the loyal opposition, Minister for National Reconciliation Ali Haydar told a news conference in Damascus that the Russian-U.S. agreements has prevented a big regional conflict, which would not have been confined to Syria alone. “This is a victory we have managed to achieve thanks to the support of our Russian friends,” he said.
