BEIRUT, September 18 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov and Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem discussed on Tuesday prospects for practical implementation of the Russian-US agreement on Syrian chemical weapons reached in Geneva.
Sergei Ryabkov stressed at talks with his Syrian counterpart that “Russia rejects threats of the use of force against Syria and consistently seeks a peaceful settlement of the crisis”.
Damascus highly trusts Russia’s position, Al-Ihbaria television quotes the Syrian minister as saying. According to him, “a new conflict in the Middle East was prevented as a result of the Russian initiative”.
Under the framework agreement between Russia and the United States, Syria must within a week’s time produce a comprehensive list of its chemical arsenals that must be moved out of the country and then destroyed under control of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
