MOSCOW, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov and German Ambassador in Moscow Ulrich Brandenburg discussed the situation in Syria with the focus on ways to settle the conflict by political and diplomatic means, the Foreign Ministry reported.
“Gatilov noted the importance of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2118 as a key mechanism to eliminate chemical weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic and settle the situation by convening the peaceful conference on Syria in Geneva as soon as possible,” the ministry said.
“The parties agreed that there was no military solution to the Syrian problem. They expressed readiness to actively contribute to the process of eliminating chemical weapons in Syria and improving a peaceful dialogue between the warring parties on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012,” the ministry said.
