BRUSSELS, April 23 (Itar-Tass) – German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle asked Russia “to help ensure a political settlement of the conflict in Syria.” He has made a statement on the sidelines of the meeting of the NATO foreign ministers in Brussels on Tuesday.
“This decision is the only acceptable one,” Westerwelle said. “If there is an intention to attain a political solution for Syria, it is needed to make proposals over the negotiations,” he said.
“The ways should be found how the negotiations in Syria can be launched,” the German foreign minister said. “Certainly, Russia plays a major role in this issue,” he underlined.
