No Syrian Crisis Settlement without Russia, China - Lavrov [View all]

MOSCOW, April 27 (RIA Novosti)

The crisis in Syria is impossible to settle if the international community ignores the positions of Russia and China, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.

“I believe there has been understanding recently that the crisis may not be settled if the positions of Russia and China are ignored,” Lavrov told the Rossiya 24 TV channel.

More than 9,000 people have been killed in Syria since the outbreak of a popular uprising against President al-Assad last March, according to UN estimates.

Russia and China have twice vetoed UN Security Council resolutions on Syria over what Russia said is a pro-rebel bias, but supported UN envoy Kofi Annan’s peace plan, which Damascus also backed.
