MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. Russia’s position on the future of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is that no one from outside can dictate him whether he must go or not, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"Russia’s position on [Syrian President Bashar] al-Assad’s future is that no one can dictate whether Assad is to go or not. Assad’s future and the future of the Syrian government can be decided only by the Syrian people," he underscored.
In general, Russia, in his words, positively assessed the results of the last week’s Vienna meeting of foreign ministers on the Syrian settlement. "Efforts are being taken. Much is yet to be done. We hope things will develop as scheduled," he added.
