Russia asks Washington to choose for political dialogue rather than to undermine by military force, the souvereignity of other countries


Nov. 14, 2012 - MOSCOW, (SANA) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday stressed that the solution to the crisis in Syria is through dialogue along with guaranteeing Syria's sovereignty, affirming that the priority is putting an end to violence according to the Geneva declaration which forms the basis for future work.

After meeting the foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, Lavrov said that all foreign players must work to apply the Geneva declaration and pressure all sides in Syria to apply it, saying that if this is done, then there's no need for a Security Council resolution on Syria.

The Russian Foreign Minister said that the meeting that took place in Doha didn't unify the entire opposition because there are opposition groups inside Syria that didn't participate in it.

He pointed out that Russia meets all opposition representatives and seeks to unify them on the basis of dialogue, not on the basis of the Doha meeting which was built on rejecting dialogue and destroying the institutes of the Syrian state completely.

Lavrov affirmed that Russia is defending the Syrian people, and that its priority is not make sure that no more victims fall in Syria, adding that it was the one to suggest issuing the Geneva declaration as a Security Council resolution, but western countries foiled this by seeking to insert  articles that weren't in the declaration, in addition to their rejection of holding a meeting in New York for the work group which convened in Geneva.
