MOSCOW, March 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov calls for convincing the Syrian parties to continue the dialogue.
Lavrov met UN/LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi in Geneva on Monday.
Commenting on the meeting, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported that Lavrov and Brahimi “thoroughly studied the results of two rounds of inter-Syrian talks in Geneva”.
The Russian minister praised the UN/LAS special envoy’s mediation at the inter-Syrian talks to reach a compromise and search for common ways to settle the crisis as soon as possible.
Lack of progress
The West’s unwillingness to take into account political realities prevent progress at the Geneva talks on the Syrian settlement, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian told a news conference on Monday.
“The lack of progress is reasoned by the US’ and their allies’ rashness and the insistence to create a transition government. The opposition delegation represents only 3 percent of the population. The problem of terrorism is ignored,” the Iranian diplomat said.
