GENEVA, June 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russia is seriously committed to convene the Geneva-2 conference on Syria as soon as possible, Russian president’s Middle East envoy and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Monday upon arrival to Geneva.
“It is vital to involve as many Syrian groups as possible in order to avoid possible problems in working out final solutions. The most important thing is to see to it that they all helped but not hampered,” he said.
“We are ready to continue efforts in this format (Russia, the United State, the United Nations),” the Russian diplomat stressed. “We are seriously committed to convene the conference. The sooner the better.”
“That is why we must work with each other actively and honestly: with the United States, with UN/LAS special envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, with partners from the United Nations structures,” Bogdanov noted. “The participation of the United Nations is very important. The invitation to the conference will be composed on behalf of the United Nations Secretary General, as we have agreed.”
