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.
The PACE should not take aside the Syrian settlement and it should express its position on the resolution of the conflict by peaceful and political means, the Russian lawmaker said.
Discussions on Syria can take place on Thursday, October 3.
The autumn session will be held from September 30 to October 4.
