Russia Denies Plan to Talk to Syria Opposition

Russia has categorically rejected Western media reports claiming that Moscow is planning to hold talks with Syrian opposition on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference about “a political transition for Syria.”


On Friday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov denied that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov would meet on Saturday with US Vice President Joe Biden, UN-Arab League special envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, and Syrian opposition leader Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib to discuss the exacerbating Syrian conflict, RIA Novosti news agency reported.

“Speculations in the media about a Munich meeting between Lavrov, Biden, Brahimi and al-Khatib are false,” Gatilov stated.


He added, “As of today, there is no such meeting mentioned in the program of the Russian foreign minister.”


On January 23, Lavrov reiterated that Russia’s position in the Syrian crisis remains an immediate end to the violence in the Arab state and restoration of peace and stability there.

He also criticized the Syrian opposition, and said nothing positive would come from its continued armed struggle against the Damascus government.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of army and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government has said that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and that a very large number of the militants operating in the country are foreign nationals.

    By now, the term “OPPOSITION” does not exist, considering the fact that, mainly it is dominated by CIA trained AlQuaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and other activists of terrorist organizations, passing through Turkey, to be financed, trained, armed and sent to Syria to terrorize its people and murder the Syrian legal government forces. This is the reality; trying to copy the destruction of Libya, without of any considerations of the Syrian Citizen.
