PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, October 24. /TASS/. Russia does not want to take into account the specific interests of only Bashar al-Assad, or the opposition - only the interests of Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with Vesti v Subbotu TV host Sergei Brilev on Saturday.
"We do not want to take into account specific interests of Bashar al-Assad, nor specific interests of the opposition," the Minister said. "We want to take into account the interests of Syria. And it is important for Syria to have a peaceful environment; to end the war as soon as possible and not let the terrorists get a chance to seize power in Damascus, or in any other part of Syria.".
