MOSCOW, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - The first statements by the Syrian national coalition’s new leader show no signs of commitment to political settlement in the country, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Monday, July 8.
“We have noted that the first statements by the new head of the National Coalition have raised a number of questions about future actions of the National Coalition and, most importantly, about its commitment to political settlement of the protracted crisis in Syria,” he said.
“Nevertheless, Moscow is ready to establish contact with the new leadership of the coalition in the interests of facilitating an end to the devastating conflict in Syria,” Lukashevich said.
