MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. Russia should play one of the leading parts in a search for political resolution to the Syrian crisis, French President Francois Hollande said on Thursday upon the end of talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He said the chaos, which Syria plunged into in 2011, produced a tidal wave of refugees and left more than 300,000 people killed. At this moment, it is important to find political solutions to this crisis. Appropriate conditions for this exist and the parties concerned should abide by them, he said.
As condition number one, Hollande pointed out the setting up of a coalition government, an independent government for a transition period, which should lead up to the adoption of a new Constitution and elections where all the political groupings and members of the Syrian community in exile could take part.
Hollande repeated, however, that the incumbent President, Bashar al-Assad cannot play any role in his country’s future.
He said he sees a major role for Russia in the process.
