MOSCOW, June 27. /TASS/. The crisis in Syria can be resolved only based on the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council, head of delegation of Syria’s Tomorrow opposition group Ahmad al-Jarba said at the meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.
"We arrived in Russia to meet with you at this sensitive moment as the wounds do not heal, Syria is suffering a catastrophe," al-Jarba said. "Every day the situation is more and more deteriorating."
Russia plays a very important role in the region, the opposition politician stressed.
"We want to exchange creative ideas on how to resolve the Syrian crisis," he said. "The Syrian crisis has no other solution than a political one based on Geneva 2, based on the UN Security Council resolutions."
"We seek to achieve ceasefire so that humanitarian corridors are opened across Syria. We will also discuss the fight against terrorism," he said.
