KUALA LUMPUR, March 15. /TASS/. Moscow will do its utmost for implementing the road map for peace in Syria, the speaker of Russia’s upper house of parliament Valentina Matviyenko said during her official visit to Malaysia on Tuesday.
"As part of the Geneva negotiating process we will do everything possible for implementing the road map for peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict," Matviyenko told reporters after a meeting with the speaker of Malaysia's Senate, Abu Zahar Ujang.
The Federation Council speaker explained that an initiative group will draft a new constitution of Syria that will be brought up for general discussion. "After the new constitution is adopted in a certain format, presidential and parliamentary elections are to be held and a government of national consent is to be set up and then the peace process in Syria will already be irreversible."
Matviyenko stressed that the fight against the Islamic State and other international terrorist groups will continue until they are completely destroyed.
