MOSCOW, June 15. /TASS/. Russia’s foreign ministry said on Monday Western and regional media demonstrate biased attitudes while covering developments in Syria and activities of terrorist groups in that country.
"Regrettably, many Western and regional mass media prefer to focus on the Syrian government’s responsibility for the death of civilians rather than on barbarous actions of terrorists and extremists who enjoy foreign support and commit brutal crimes against the Syrian people virtually every day," the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement after a series of terrorist attacks in the Syrian city of Homs.
Russia calls on the Syrian parties standing for Syria’s sovereignty and integrity "to spare no effort to search for ways of settling the conflict via an intra-Syrian dialogue and talks on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012, and on foreign forces having influence on the Syrian developments to support this process in fact rather than in word."
"This is the only way to create necessary conditions to consolidate the Syrians with an aim of rebuffing international terrorism and restoring peace in Syria in the interests of all Syrians," the ministry underscored.
A total of 37 people were hurt in twin explosions in Homs on June 14.
