Foreign Minister Lavrov: Russia’s position on Syria “immune to change”.
The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has recently called the alleged evidence for the use of chemical weapons (e.g. poison gas) by the Syrian government and units of the Syria Arab Army in chemical attacks on Syrian civilians in suburbs of Damascus not convincing and he urged the US administration of President Obama to share more details due to the dangerous turmoil in and around Syria.
A new statement by the Foreign Minister of Russia, Sergei Lavrov, says now that the position of Moscow regarding the situation in and around Syria is “immune to change” and this simply means that it does not matter what others might offer or try, Russia will not chance its current stance on the turmoil and situation in and around the Syrian conflict and the possible US-led military attack on Damascus.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov explained further, after saying that Russia’s stance towards the Syrian conflict and the situation in and around the Arab country is “immune to change”, that there is no alternative to a peaceful and diplomatic settlement for the ongoing conflict and crisis on Syrian soil.
Sergey Lavrov also stated in his new statement from today, that the foreign-backed “Syrian opposition” has to participate in the planned peace conference in Geneva (Geneva II) in order to find a peaceful and political solution to the Syrian conflict. Russia’s Foreign Minister Lavrov has also called on the foreign-backed “Syrian opposition” to participate in the Geneva II talks on Syria without calling for preconditions.
Meanwhile, the Syrian counterpart of Russia’s Foreign Minister Lavrov, the Syrian Minister Walid al-Muallem (al-Moallem), who is currently in Moscow, said to the press that any US military attack against Syria will certainly “jeopardize the Geneva 2 conference” that should actually find a political and peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict and crisis in Syria.
In addition, Russia has recently mentioned the same – a US-led war on Syria will delay the proposed conference in Geneva or even render the planned international peace conference on the Syrian conflict impossible.
That a possible US-led military strike on Syria would jeopardize the Geneva 2 conference aimed at finding a political solution to the conflict and turmoil in and around Syria is logical.
A possible military attack by US-led forces against Syria will certainly increase the conflict and violence in the Arab country. The suffering of the Syrian people will increase while the US troops and the American military in principle supports the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda in the fight against the secular Syrian government in Damascus and against the secular Syrian nation. Not to mention the certain dire consequences of a war on Damascus for the country as well as for the entire Middle Eastern region.
The known Canadian professor and author Michel Chossudovsky has yet again warned that a possible US-led military strike on Syria could be a prelude to a horrible World War III (WWIII) scenario and would trigger gruesome consequences for the Middle East and probably even for the West. Not to mention the possible retaliatory measures by the allies of Syria such as the Iranian administration in Tehran.
