Moscow: Settlement of Crisis in Syria Hindered by Countries that are Supporting Conflict
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov dismissed as baseless the accusations against Russia and Chine as derailing the settlement of the crisis in Syria.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Morgulov said that "Our partners in the region and in the west realize that these accusations are baseless."
He added that the settlement is hindered by the forces that are supporting the 'armed conflict' in the country and unconditionally supporting a sole side with money and weapons, highlighting that "This approach encourages the stances of the extremists and provides room for the activities of the international terrorists and extremists."
Morgulov said that the stance of China and Russia regarding the crisis in Syria is firm as they believe that the solution is a political one that can be reached by internal dialogue and without foreign interference.
He said that the statement of the BRICS summit supported the Russian and Chinese stances concerning Syria, stressing that the BRICS countries contain approximately half of the world's population.
" The attempts of some countries to bring down regimes through foreign powers are unacceptable for Russia and China. Depending on the military option to solve the crisis in Syria will have lethal repercussions on the region and the world," Morgulov said.
He expressed Moscow and Beijing's rejection of the unilateral sanctions against Syria as they aggravate the suffering of the Syrian people.
