STOCKHOLM, September 21 (Itar-Tass) - Russia may change its position on Syria if it understands that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is cheating, presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov said.

“I am speaking theoretically and hypothetically, but if we become confident that Assad is cheating, we may change our position,” Ivanov said at a plenary meeting of the 10th conference of the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, held in Stockholm on Saturday, September 21.

At the same time, he suggested considering yet another hypothetical scenario: specifically, if it becomes clear that chemical weapons were used in Syria by both official Damascus and the opposition.

Speaking about how Russia will act in the current situation, Ivanov said: “Only diplomatically. What else can we do?”
