MOSCOW, March 6 (Itar-Tass) – Attempts to saturate the Syrian opposition with arms are extremely dangerous and are contrary to the settlement efforts in the country, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Wednesday, March 6.
“Russia is concerned about the situation, especially about statements from Rome that the United States and some of its Western partners are planning to encourage opposition groups in Syria. This is not what is needed now,” he said.
“We hope that the U.S. will consistently adhere to the Geneva Communique, which remains the ‘Bible’ for Syrian settlement at this point,” the diplomat said.
“We think there is no alternative to this and attempts to saturate the opposition with arms are extremely dangerous and are contrary to the political settlement in Syria,” Lukashevich said.
