MOSCOW, October 16 (Itar-Tass) - The United Nations hopes to organise the Geneva-2 conference in the second half of November, a U.N. high-ranking official said.
All Syrian parties and regional players should take part in the conference to find a political solution to the problem, the U.N. diplomat said.
The conference is based on the Geneva communique of June 30,2012 that is why the conference is considered a forum between Syrians themselves to implement the communique and reach agreement on a transition period, he said.
The situation in Syria is dangerous and none wants destabilisation in the country, the diplomat said.
Commenting on the term of the conference, the U.N. official said Russia, the United States and the U.N. should continue the work to achieve progress.
Speaking about the participation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assads in the country’s political life, he said this issue was important.
Syrians themselves should decide on their fate and it is necessary to do everything possible to allow Syrians and regional countries to launch the political process, the U.N. diplomat said.
The United Nations Organization praises highly Russia’s leading role in the resolution of the Syrian crisis, the U.N. official noted.
Noting the importance of political resolution of the situation in Syria, the diplomat noted that Russia had played the decisive role in the adoption of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2118 over the destruction of chemical weapons in Syria.
