Arms Supplies to Syrian Rebels Expanding - Moscow

MOSCOW, February 19 (RIA Novosti) - Foreign military supplies to Syria’s armed opposition have been growing, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Tuesday.

“This is not conducive to normalization in that country and fuels violence,” Gatilov told a news conference hosted by RIA Novosti.

The arming of one party to the conflict significantly complicates the attempts to get the opposing sides to negotiate, he said without naming the “foreign arms suppliers.”

Gatilov reiterated Russia’s official position that it will not carry out fresh arms deliveries to the Syrian government, but is only supplying arms and military equipment under contracts signed before the civil war, which has claimed some 70,000 lives according to the latest UN estimates.
