Moscow hopes that the so-called League of the Arab States will soon correct its position on the situation in Syria and their handling of this topic.
The Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said it recently that Russia hopes the League of Arab States (LAS) will change its position and even correct its stances on the topic Syria.
The Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov was asked whether the so-called League of Arab States (Arab League / AL) has not lost its legitimacy by giving the seat of Syria to the so-called external Syrian opposition, the Russian FM answered that Moscow has to look at the further steps of the League of Arab States and that Moscow will then see if this Arab League has lost its legitimacy or not.
In addition, the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov also stated that the logic of events in terms of the conflict and situation within Syria should suggest that there is no real alternative to a political settlement of the conflict in Syria and this settlement can only be based on a national consensus.
This consensus, according to the Russian Foreign Minister Bogdanov, can be achieved by dialogue between the Syrians – the Syrian authorities and the “opposition”.
And this is why Moscow is convinced that every side of the conflict in Syria should correct its approaches and that hasty conclusions or quickly adopted decisions are not the solution for Syria and they are not the end of the road – certain approaches, according to the Russian Foreign Minister Bogdanov, may be revisited.
