MOSCOW, December 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia is not conducting any talks over the fate of Syrian President Bashar Assad, spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich confirmed this news report once again on Friday.
“We are not conducting any talks either with our US partners or in other formats,” he noted. “Russia is searching meticulously and insistently for the ways to settle the current crisis in Syria in political ways,” he said.
“The fulfilment of the Geneva agreements is the platform for this settlement. The violence should be stopped and the parties to the conflict should get down to the table of negotiations,” Lukashevich said. The fate of the peoples rather than their leaders is at stake, the Russian diplomat added.
