Lukashevich: US Plans to Send 200 Soldiers to Jordan Contradict Geneva Statement
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Alexander Lukashevich, said the US plans to send 200 soldiers to Jordan in relation to the crisis in Syria contradicts the political commitments in Geneva Statement.

"These measures are incompatible with the political commitments and the stances which were agreed upon by all the main foreign parties active in settling the crisis in Syria in Geneva last year," Lukashevich told the reporters in Moscow on Friday.

He said Russia calls upon all its Western and regional partners "to drop these dangerous practices and move towards meeting those political commitments adopted by all of us with regard to finding a solution to the crisis."

Lukashevich warned that boosting the U.S. military presence in Jordan could lead to deepening the crisis in Syria which is taking catastrophic regional dimensions, saying these moves are not the ones now required to get Syria out of its crisis.

He noted that the statements of the US Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel, confirm the news to which Russia has drawn attention regarding training fighters of the "Syrian opposition" in neighboring countries.

He called upon Russia's partners who signed the Geneva Statement to realize which way they opt to go regarding Syria in terms of either going ahead with the way through which they seek to achieve their personal interests by inciting more bloodshed or working to get to launch the political process and start negotiations between the Syrian government and the opposition without preconditions.

The Russian spokesman expressed Moscow's rejection of solving the humanitarian issue in Syria through 'humanitarian corridors' and 'buffer zones' by overstepping the Syrian government.

He stressed that a solid cooperation has been built between the international humanitarian agencies and the Syrian government and "it is not acceptable to undermine it by pushing forward the idea of opening some humanitarian corridors or buffer zones by overstepping the Syrian government."

He highlighted that Russia considers these acts as a violation of Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Lukashevich pointed out that his country plans to allocate USD 3 million in humanitarian aid for Syria during 2013, noting that the aid which Russia offered Syria in 2012 reached USD 7 million.

The Russian diplomat expressed concerns over reports that increasingly growing numbers of citizens from foreign countries are fighting alongside the terrorist groups on Syria's land.

"It's clear that those extremists who are now fighting their first battles in Syria could appear with their full skills in other countries," said Lukashevich.

Gatilov: Any Humanitarian Aid Should Pass through the Syrian Authorities

Meanwhile, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Gennady Gatilov, said any humanitarian aid should pass through the official Syrian authorities.

Speaking to the reporters in Moscow, Gatilov noted that the Security Council members voiced the idea of providing humanitarian aid to the needed citizens in Syria wherever necessary across the border, and that there was stress that this move is to be implemented according to the UN principles in this regard.

He clarified that this means that implementing the delivery of any humanitarian supplies should be done with the consent of the Syrian authorities exclusively
