MOSCOW, October 3. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said he hopes that Washington will clarify its position on the opposition in Syria.
"As for the true position of the White House on the Syrian crisis, then the statements and actions of American colleagues on Syria are indeed characterized by famous inconsistency," Lavrov told reporters.
Moscow wants this ambiguity to be removed, he said, adding that this directly affects the cooperation with Washington on implementing the Russian-US agreements.
"The agreements are now in limbo due to ambiguity on how Washington perceives the approaches of a whole number of opposition groups, militants and political opposition to the Assad regime who are rejecting or refusing to accept the Russian-US deal," Lavrov said.
"That’s why we want to clarify the situation here," Lavrov said, adding that the discussion on this is held with US Secretary of State John Kerry several times a day, like on October 1. "I hope that such clarity will be added."
Moscow is seriously concerned over the attempts by some participants in the Syrian settlement process to act contrary to UN Security Council resolutions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.
"We’re seriously concerned over what is happening in Syria and how UN Security Council resolutions are being fulfilled," the foreign minister said.
"We’re concerned over the attempts by some participants in the process inside and outside Syria to act contrary to UN Security Council resolutions," Lavrov said.
"We want to achieve the removal of obstacles on the way of fulfilling what we agreed upon relative to the Syrian settlement," the foreign minister said.
