SEVASTOPOL, September 12. /TASS/. Kremlin regards it inadmissible to impose on the Syrians from outside the solutions to their country's development, the Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Saturday answering a reporter's request to comment on U.S. President Barack Obama's words that Moscow's strategy towards Syria is a mistake.
"We think it inadmissible to impose on the Syrians a decision from outside," Peskov said recalling that President Vladimir Putin said not once: "The Syrians themselves should decide the future of Syria."
In recent days, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon voiced a similar stance, Peskov said.
Russia’s stance on the Syria settlement has long attracted criticism but no-one has ever come forward with a comprehensible alternative, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Saturday in comments on U.S. President Barack Obama’s words that Moscow’s strategy towards Syria is a mistake.
"No-one has been able to give a sensible answer yet what alternative to the acting legitimate government of Syria can be offered to ensure security in the country, to fight against the spreading Islamic State [terrorist group] and to secure the country’s unity," Peskov said. "No-one can give a comprehensible answer yet.’
"Criticism of Russia’s consistent stance on the Syria crisis is not something new under the sun," the Kremlin spokesman said.
