MOSCOW, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and the European Union have tactical disagreements on the Syrian settlement, Russian permanent representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov said.
However, both parties realise the need to ensure peace in the country and provide humanitarian assistance to the population, Chizhov told a news conference on Friday.
“I understand that it is difficult to take in the balance inside the Syrian opposition - who represents whom, who cooperates with whom and who carries war with whom,” the Russian ambassador said, adding that the European Union gave more unbalanced assessments on the role of the Syrian leadership.
“It is clear that there are no angels. But it is necessary to give an objective assessment to the Syrian leadership,” he said.
