MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The fight against terrorism in Syria and the Middle East will be one of the key issues at the Geneva II Peace Conference, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the Federation Council, upper house of parliament, on Wednesday.
“It seems to me the international community agrees that the fight against terrorism is one of the priority issues, which will be on the agenda of the Geneva II Peace Conference due to take place in Montreux on January 22, 2014,” the minister said.
Commenting on the recent attack on peaceful civilians in the Syrian town of Adra, he said, “Terrorist internationalism is putting down roots in Syria.”
“Terrorist groups, which are not linked with Al Qaeda, have a serious impact on the situation. These groups are now posing the most serious threat in Syria and in the Middle East as a whole,” Lavrov said.
“It would be very useful for the Syrian government and the opposition to unite in order to fight terrorism. The terrorist threat is the main obstacle to settle the situation in Syria,” he said.
