MOSCOW, October 9 (Itar-Tass) - Russia fully supports the UN Security Council’s decision in favor of eliminating Syria's chemical weapons and believes that stability there can only be achieved politically, the chief of the General Staff, General of the Army Valery Gerasimov, said after talks with his British colleague General Nicolas Houghton on Wednesday.
Russia will continue contacts with foreign partners with an emphasis on the implementation of this resolution, he added.
Gerasimov described the negotiations with his Birtish counterpart as “very fruitful”.
“We have discussed a wide range of issues in relation to bilateral military co-operation,” said Gerasimov. He thanked the UK specialists’ willingness to share experience of maintaining security at important sporting events, such as Olympic Games.
Alongside bilateral military co-operation the two men discussed ways to settle conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and the Middle East.
Houghston said Russia-UK co-operation in fighting piracy and efforts for a peace settlement in Afghanistan had been “very effective.” He also supported the idea of joint military training and underscored the importance of the dialogue as a means to resist common threats amid the present instability in world affairs.
