MOSCOW, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he is hopeful that the initial measures to convene the Geneva-2 conference on Syria would be started shortly.
After the talks with his Indian counterpart Salman Khurshid on Wednesday, Lavrov said, “We’d like to convene the Geneva-2 conference as soon as possible to allow Syrians themselves to agree on measures to implement the Geneva communique.”
The parties have given a high assessment to the resolutions by the Executive Council of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the U.N. Security Council. The resolutions aimed at taking chemical weapons under control and eliminating their arsenals in Syria garner their support, the Russian minister said.
“We hope that the consultations, which are being held now by the U.N. Secretary General and U.N./LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, will yield results,” the minister said, adding, “We’ll be able to start preparing the conference.”
