“We are convinced that attaining real victory over terrorists in Syria will be possible not through air strikes by the United States and its allies without the UN Security Council’s resolution or consent from Syria’s legal authorities, but through joint efforts by all states on an internationally recognized legal basis,” the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement runs. “And a final settlement of the internal armed conflict in that country can be achieved by means of intra-Syrian national reconciliation and a political settlement.”

“In this regard, we appeal to all forces having influence on developments in Syria to take a clear-cut and unambiguous position to attain such settlement through inclusive intra-Syrian dialogue and to resume political peace process launched in Geneva,” Russian diplomatic agency said in its statement.
