MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) will insist debates on Syria be held immediately and a corresponding resolution be adopted, State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Aleksei Pushkov said.
Russia’s proposal has been backed by the Bureau in Croatia, Pushkov said.
The final decision should be taken on September 30 when the PACE autumn session is opened, he added.
“Syria is the priority issues of world politics,” Pushkov said.
