MOSCOW, December 21, (ITAR-TASS). International decisions on Syria that had been made over the past month helped to depart from the logic of the use of force to political settlement in Syria, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grygory Karasin said.
He spoke at a meeting with participants in the scientific and education project Dialogue for the Sake of Future 2013, organised by the Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund.
Speaking of the situation in Syria, Karasin emphasized importance of the ongoing elimination of chemical weapons. “The first stage of this process has been fulfilled, equipment for producing chemical weapons has been dismantled,” he said. “The second stage is no less important, this is removal of chemical weapons” controlled by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
“The year of 2013 was important from the point of view of certain positive moves in solving old problems. In particular, this concerns Syria and Iran’s nuclear problem,” Karasin added.
