MOSCOW, June 03. /ITAR-TASS/. There is an idea to form a coalition government with the opposition in Syria after presidential elections, presidential special envoy for the Middle East and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Tuesday.
“There is an idea to form a coalition government with the opposition after presidential elections in Syria. The other point is what kind of opposition it will be — internal, liberal or loyal. Let’s wait and see. It depends on the type of opposition, there are many different types of opposition,” he said.
Russia thinks that attempts to politicize the humanitarian crisis in Syria are counterproductive, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and president’s special envoy Mikhail Bogdanov said on Tuesday.
“Along with political and diplomatic efforts on the peace settlement of the conflict, Russia has been offering humanitarian aid to the Syrian people,” he said at a conference of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society. “We think it counterproductive to try to politicize the humanitarian crisis, to use it as a justification for foreign interference."
