MOSCOW, March 6 (Itar-Tass) – The situation in Syria is deteriorating and tensions are growing, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Wednesday, March 6.
“The situation has become much more complicated and dramatically strained. Terrorist sorties go beyond the border. We believe that further bloodshed and death of innocent people are unacceptable,” he said.
“Russia is engaged in active contact at all levels, including the presidential one, in order to stop the violence in Syria and launch a dialogue between the conflicting parties,” the diplomat said.
He recalled the Syrian government’s statement at recent meetings in Moscow, which reiterated its readiness to begin a dialogue. “A government commission on dialogue has been formed. Unfortunately, the opposition wing is sending contradictory signals and no negotiator required by the Geneva accords has so far been appointed,” Lukashevich said.
Moscow hopes that its partners will take necessary efforts to settle the situation in Syria, he added.
