GENEVA, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Syrian government hopes Russia will put pressure on the U.S. so that the latter would force the Syrian opposition to send a more authoritative delegation to the Geneva II peace settlement talks, Bouthaina Shaaban, an adviser to President Bashar al-Assad told Itar-Tass Thursday.
Now Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has received very plausible arguments for a conversation with (U.S. Secretary of State) Mr. Kerry.
The government delegation has taken a very fruitful position at the talks, as it submitted three documents for the talks. The package spelt out the principles of peace settlement in Syria but the opposition turned down all of them, Shaaban said.
Speaking of the role Russia could play in terms of improving the situation of the Syrian people, Shaaban said the government was thankful to Russia for the assistance that it had given to the Syrians already but the nation still needed expansive economic aid.
The main issue, however, is to establish peace in Syria, she said.
