Russia will Push for adopting Geneva Agreement on Syria at the UNSC

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Saturday underlined his country’s intent to push for adopting Geneva agreement on the crisis in Syria at the forthcoming meeting of the UN Security council later this month.

“We affirmed to the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that we will call on the Security Council to adopt Geneva agreement,” RIA NOVOSTI quoted Lavrov as saying to reporters in the Russian city of Vladivostok which hosts Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit ( APEC).

Lavrov reiterated his country’s principled stance which calls for dialogue to resolve the crises and rejects imposing sanctions.

“The unilateral sanctions imposed by the US on Syria and Iran surpassed their regional borders from a natural perspective, they directly impact the Russian interests, particularly the banks,” Lavrov said, adding that Russia has never supported any of the sanctions against Syria as they would achieve nothing.

“The European sanctions on Syria have been intensified several times.. as well as the US unilateral sanctions were imposed on Syria without consulting Moscow,” Lavrov said.

He considered that Moscow and Washington wants Syria to become a free, democratic and prosperous country under an elected government, calling on the foreign influential powers to press the conflict sides in Syria to sit round the dialogue table.

Lavrov underlined that Russia at the same time backs a conference that will be convened by Syrian opposition groups later this month.
