Russia warns against attempts to escalate Syria crisis
Tehran, Russia's Permanent Representative at the UN Vasily Nebenzya warned Western states against attempting to escalate the crisis in Syria to achieve suspicious personal gains.
During a Security Council session on the situation in the Middle East, Nebenzya said that it's impossible to impose the constitutional committees with conditions that contradict the Syrians' will, and that there are no basis to set arbitrary dates for forming this committee, SANA reported.
He hoped that de Mistura would realize the degree of responsibility he has at this critical time before the end of his mandate, and that he would exert his best efforts to achieve the desired results regarding the political process within his jurisdiction and in a manner that fully respects Syrian sovereignty
