BERLIN, October 2. /TASS/. Germany’s Foreign Ministry on Friday expressed "great concern" over reports of Russian actions in Syria.
"We should bring to the negotiating table various political actors who one way or another have a hand in Syria’s future," foreign ministry spokeswoman Sawsan Chebli told a news conference in Berlin. "None of the sides will be able to resolve this conflict by military means. We should make efforts to pave the way for a political process," she said.
"The truth is that Russian airstrikes have not facilitated endeavours" [to find a solution to the crisis], Chebli said.
Russia’s Aerospace Forces started dealing daytime pinpoint strikes against facilities of the Islamic State terrorist group, outlawed in Russia, on Wednesday, September 30. The air group in Syria incorporates more than 50 planes and helicopters, including Sukhoi-24M, Sukhoi-25 and multi-functional Sukhoi-34. Over the past day, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, attacks were mounted against twelve targets.
