Jan 31, 2014
Moscow, (SANA) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Gennady Gatilov said that the decision of the US Congress to arm the Syrian "opposition" is regretful since such decisions do not help the success of Geneva 2 Conference.
"We regret such decisions that consider sending weapons at a time when communications have just started among the sides; the issue will aggravate the situation and undermine the trust-building process between them," Gatilov said on Friday.
He pointed out that Moscow desires to see in the future the agreements which were specified among the Syrians confirmed in the form of a UN Security Council resolution.
Gatilov stressed that Russia will continue its political follow-up of the Syrian dialogue in Geneva during the second round as well and will increase the level of representation when necessary.
He added that Moscow considered statements on the possibility of using military force against Syria are unconstructive.
Gatilov pointed out that in spite of the difficulties of the first round of talks in Geneva, Moscow highly values the dialogue which started and considers it as an important positive step on the way to a comprehensive political solution in Syria.
