MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. It is too early to speak about any concrete parameters of the Syrian settlement, the Kremlin spokesman said on Monday.
"So far, there is no common stance at the talks [on Syrian settlement]. The process goes on with difficulty," Dmitry Peskov, the Russian president’s press secretary, told journalists. "So, I don’t think we can speak about any parameters in a situation like this."
He also said that many formats of political settlement have already been outlines and are now on the agenda.
"Russia’s foreign policy is determined by the Russian president and implemented by the Foreign Ministry," Peskov said when asked to comment on pronouncements by a senior Russian lawmaker who said the process of national reconciliation in Syria could not be efficient without establishing national autonomies.
Earlier, Leonid Slutsky, the chairman of the international committee of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, said that national autonomies in Syria would promote the process of reconciliation. "We will discuss with the country’s leaders, with lawmakers the situation around the constitution, the most important issues such as the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254, prisoner exchange, possibilities for the establishment of national autonomies, without which real reconciliation in that country is impossible," he told journalists in Damascus where he had arrived with a delegation of Russian and PACE lawmakers earlier in the day.
