TOKYO, November 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russia hails Japan’s intention to take part in the Geneva-2 conference on Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after two-plus-two talks on Saturday.
“The main task on the Syrian track for the entire world community is to convene a Geneva-2 conference as soon as possible,” Lavrov said. “There has been too much gambling around this initiative that Russia and the United States put forward. Too many attempts to disrupt this initiative, or at least to distort its meaning and to make it follow an unrealistic course and eventually bring it to a dead end.”
“In a situation like this we very much appreciate the positions of those countries which consistently support this initiative by Moscow and Washington without any preconditions in its original form. Japan is one of such countries. We confirmed that we would be very much interested to see its participation in Geneva-2.
