Moscow Warns Attempts to Cheat during Intra-Syrian Talks Likely to Affect Political Process
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said attempts to cheat at intra-Syrian talks in Geneva will have a bad effect on the political process
"We are certain that the positive experience gained in Astana will be capitalized on in the future, said Zakharova during her regular press briefing in Moscow, TASS reported.
We expect that the talks in Geneva due later this week will end the dangerous prolonged pause in the intra-Syrian dialog, she stated.
Ensuring proper representation of the Syrian opposition, as it is required by the UN Security Council's Resolution 2254, is a precondition of such a dialog and its productiveness.
Any attempts to cheat somewhere to cater to the interests of those who do not wish to see peace and unity in Syria will have a bad effect on the continuity and productiveness of the political process, Zakharova said.
