MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and his German counterpart discussed the situation in the Middle East, the Russian Foreign Ministry reports after consultations in Berlin.
It said the diplomats substantially discussed "topical issues of mutual interest on the Middle East agenda, paying special attention to the development of the military-political and humanitarian situation in Syria, Libya, Yemen, as well as prospects for the Palestinian-Israeli settlement".
"Common opinion was expressed that the political settlement to the conflict situations in the region through an inclusive national dialog and with abidance by generally recognized rules of international law has no alternative," the ministry said.
"In discussing Syria, they confirmed a need for giving a boost to efforts on the crisis settlement in the Syrian Arab Republic on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012, corresponding resolutions of the UN Security Council and decisions of the International Syria Support Group," the Foreign Ministry said.
Bogdanov, who is Russian president’s special envoy for the Middle East and Africa, informed the German state secretary about the humanitarian operation in Aleppo that Russia carries out in cooperation with the Syrian government, measures taken in coordination with the UN and US efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to those in need.
The sides "stated a common bid towards continuing an intensive Russian-German dialogue between the foreign ministries on a wide range of problems of the Middle East and North Africa," the ministry said.
