MONTREUX, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Disagreements inside Islam cannot prevail in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at the Geneva II Peace Conference on Syria currently underway in Montreux, Switzerland.
“We’re concerned about the growing exit of Christians for whom this land has been their own home for 2,000 years. Christians live in Syria in peace and accord with the Arab and other brothers,” Lavrov said.
Russia “values the friendly relations with Arab and all Moslem states. It wants the Islamic world to be united and to play one of the important roles in the polycentric system of international relations”, the Russian minister said.
“We’re guided by these principles by developing partnership with the League of Arab States, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf,” he added.
