MOSCOW, September 28 (Itar-Tass) - Foreign Ministers of member-countries of the U.N. Security Council discussed issues related to the convocation of the Geneva-2 conference on Syria on the sidelines of the 68th session of the U.N. General Assembly, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
The meeting also involved U.N./LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi.
“The participants in the meeting agreed that the U.N. Security Council resolution on chemical weapons in Syria opened up a way to invigorate the efforts on the political settlement in Syria. It should be based on the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012. The conference is designed to give a start to the direct inter-Syrian dialogue in order to determine the future structure of the country,” the ministry said.
“The foreign ministers consented to convene the Geneva-2 conference approximately in the middle of November. To this end, Lakhdar Brahimi should step up the work with the Syrian government, the opposition and other interested parties,” the ministry said.
“Sergei Lavrov riveted attention to the need to involve the opposition, which will be able to expose views of Syrian political forces within the dialogue with the existing Syrian government in order to reach genuine national accord,” the ministry said.
