MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called for intensification of activities of the UN and Arab League special envoy for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, in the preparation of an international conference on Syria. This stated the Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday after Lavrov’s meeting with Brahimi that took place on Tuesday on the sidelines of the ministerial week of the 68th session of the UN General Assembly.
“Sergei Lavrov called for the intensification of the activities of the UN/LAS special representative regarding preparations for calling an international conference on Syria, which should give a start to a direct inter-Syrian dialogue,” the ministry informed.
“The sides expressed the common view that there is no alternative to a political-diplomatic solution to the Syrian crisis,” the ministry said. “They emphasized that only the launch of the political process in Syria would ensure lasting stabilization in this country and would positively affect the situation in the region in general.”
