MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - The Kremlin considers it important to support a positive impetus given to Syria’s conflict settlement that may switch it onto a peaceful track.
“I wound not like to run ahead,” the president’s aide, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters on Thursday focusing on the situation around Syria. “It is very important that an impetus has been given. It is much more important that it has enlisted support.”
“The fact that the proposal to put chemical weapons in Syria under international control has been put forward, supported and is now being discussed is very important,” he said. “It may as we hope switch the settlement process onto peaceful track.”
This “at least for some time has staved off the threat of a strike on Syria, which would have been a strike on international stability,” he said. “Now it is necessary to take efforts to prevent it from flowing into sand.”
