In Syria, Russia is defending justice and the sovereign right of the people to their government’s peaceful democratic choice, rather than the political regime in Damascus, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily in Moscow earlier today.

He said he is certain that a settlement in Syria can only be achieved via dialogue involving all political forces of the country.

Otherwise the world will bear witness to a destructive civil war in Syria. Providing support for one party to the conflict and pushing it to confrontation will not ensure peace, but will, conversely, damage world stability, the Russian Foreign Minister said.
