MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. Moscow is calling on the Syrian sides and participants of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) to consistently implement adopted decisions, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.
"The groundwork has been developed, and ISSG countries work: some with total efficiency, someone works, and this is good in principle. We believe the most important thing now is that the Syrian sides and all ISSG participants should consistently implement in full the adopted decisions," Zakharova said.
"The current moment in the Syrian situation can be described as a turning point," she said. "Russia is systematically pushing ahead with all efforts it can take, including those within the International Syria Support Group, in order to ensure the trend towards normalization and transition of the intra-Syrian conflict into the political settlement phase should prevail."
"We do expect that this policy will meet with the understanding of and support from all of that group’s participants," Zakharova said.
Zakharova commented on the refusal to put Ahrar ash-Sham and Jaysh al-Islam groups on the terrorist list.
"This is a manifestation of a very unconstructive approach of our colleagues," Zakharova said. "This goes against not only international documents on normalizing the situation in Syria but also the implementation of the concrete plan on how to achieve it - that is, to stop militants, their supplies, to hold talks only with those forces that declared noninvolvement and rejection fof terrorist activities," she added.
"We are acting openly in UN Security Council. We explain every step on bilateral and multilateral basis," Zakharova said.
