ASTANA, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and the United States will do their best to justify the world community’s expectations on Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“It is necessary for all to ‘climb out of the storm’. Russia and the U.S. cannot do this together if their initiatives [on the Syrian resolution] are not broadly upheld,” Lavrov said.
“Now it is necessary to find a way to come to agreement. I hope that Russian-American interaction to implement principles of the Geneva communique will help us move forward. I hope that understanding, which has been recently reached on the idea of placing chemical weapons in Syria under international control, will help us remove a threat of attack. I hope that this understanding will strengthen the chances to ensure peace,” the Russian minister said.
“Many people say: if Russia and the U.S. act jointly, problems could be solved easier,” Lavrov said, adding, “We’re trying to act jointly and we’re listening to advice.”
“Our initiative should be based on the principles of international law. I believe that the latest events are interpreted wrong. I hope that we’ll try to justify the world community’s expectations as part of the meetings in Geneva tonight and tomorrow,” the Russian minister said.
