Muallem, Lavrov to discuss settlement to Syria crisis

Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, said the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will discuss with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem here on Thursday the political settlement in Syria and the issue of the return of refugees to their homeland.

The top diplomats will focus on the implementation of the decisions of the Syrian National Dialogue Conference in Sochi, especially those related to the formation and commencement of the work of the Constitution Drafting Committee in Geneva with the assistance of the UN Special Envoy to Syria, Stefan de Mistura, Zakharova said in a briefing today.

Zakharova noted the conditions are now appropriate in Syria to achieve a qualitative leap for the better, launch economic activity and eliminate terrorists completely.

Western provocations and potential military aggression against Syria would be a serious blow not only to the political settlement efforts in the country, but also to global security in general, she affirmed.
