Gatilov: Any Peace-keeping Process in Syria Should be Approved by Syrian Government
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Gennady Gatilov, on Tuesday said that any peace-keeping process in Syria should pass through the UN Security Council and be agreed upon by all sides, particularly the Syrian Government.
Gatilov said in a statement that the UN Security Council is the only body that can send peace-keeping forces to Syria.
He added that Russia holds continued communications with UN Envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, and invited him to hold consultations.
Earlier, Brahimi denied that he proposed sending peacekeeping forces as British media reports claimed.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said that Moscow is prepared to offer suggestions to Brahimi to make a plan for resolving the crisis in Syria.
In an interview with Novosti news agency, Bogdanov said that Moscow appreciates Brahimi’s determination to expedite finding political solutions to the Syrian crisis, particularly since he intends to employ the plan of his predecessor Kofi Annan and the closing statement of the workgroup meeting in Geneva.
He added that Brahimi doesn’t have a comprehensive plan yet, but he is talking with all relevant Syrian and international sides to clarify his vision on resolving the crisis.
Bogdanov reiterated Moscow’s call for the Security Council to issue a decision on Syria based on the Geneva statement, saying that Russia believes that doing so would help efforts for ending the violence in Syria, adding that Russia said this to its western partners repeatedly but they haven’t responded so far.
