MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Speaker of Russia’s Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko has said that the international community is taking a turn towards understanding Moscow’s stance on Syria.

"There is a growing realization of the fact that a political solution to a very wide range of problems, especially in and around Syria, is impossible without the elimination of IS [the Islamic State terrorist group]," the senator told Russia’s Argumenti i Fakti weekly on Friday.

According to Matviyenko, the simplest solution to the Syrian problem "would be joint efforts of all interested states within the framework of a single international coalition." "Russia is committed to such cooperation," she said. The speaker of the upper house of parliament noted with regret that so far Russia had failed to come to an agreement with Western partners on such cooperation. "But, as the head of the Russian state noted, we do not give up hope," she added.

Nevertheless, Matviyenko pointed to "some progress in coordination of actions between the military." In her opinion, "there is a turn towards greater understanding and support of Russia’s stance in the international community as well." "I had an opportunity to see this during my recent visits to Jordan, Kenya and an Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Geneva," she said.
