SOCHI, September 23 (Itar-Tass) - Russia calls on the Collective Security Treaty Cooperation (CSTO) member countries to support the efforts of the international community on Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated on Monday at a joint meeting of the CSTO Council of Foreign Ministers, Council of Defense Ministers and the Committee of Secretaries of Security Councils of the CSTO member states.
“We are concerned over the situation in Syria, not only in the light of its negative consequences for the entire region, but also its negative consequences for the entire international law system,” Lavrov said.
“You know there is the need to find a solution as soon as possible to the problem of launching a dialogue, to address the chemical weapons issue,” said the minister.
“I think that today we will be able to support the international community’s efforts on Syria,” he added.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that CSTO leaders will adopt a joint statement on Syria on Monday.
“We have to develop common approaches to this problem that will be fixed in the CSTO member-states’ statement on Syria,” he said adding that CSTO member-states were interested in Syria’s crisis to be resolved through diplomatic and political means.
“I am confident that our joint work will be rather effective and useful,” Putin said noting that delegates had to adopt over ten documents on different aspects of the Organization’s activity.
