Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on Tuesday for the implementation of the UN Security Council’s resolutions on fighting terrorism, asserting that Russia’s participation in fighting terrorism in Syria led to “the adoption of significant resolutions by the Security Council.
Lavrov said, in a press conference, that the missions of the Russian air force, upon request of the Syrian government, led to significant changes on the Syrian ground in fighting terrorism.
Regional and international parties have finally realized the need for abandoning pre-conditions for launching the intra-Syrian talks, He added.
The Russian Minister reiterated that the obstinacy of the Syrian opposition which refuses to sit to the negotiating table is absolutely unacceptable.
Lavrov rejected any attempt to marginalize some parties of the Syrian opposition in the upcoming Geneva talks, saying this will be a flagrant violation of the UN Security council’s resolution No. 2254.
