Putin: Many depends on Syria's neighbors2012-06-27 12:29
The countries neighboring Syria should actively participate in resolving the situation around the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, RIA Novosti reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"It seems to me that the more Syria's neighbors are involved in the settlement process, the better. At least something depends on almost every country, it will somehow affect certain forces within the country; ignoring these opportunities would be counterproductive and would complicate the process", Putin said.
The Russian leader recalled the cooperation with Iran on Afghanistan and on other issues. "It should not be associated with problems of the Iranian nuclear program, this is a separate issue. Therefore, in my opinion, it would be better to engage Iran in a settlement and to enlist its support. It would be better if the people in Syria agree among themselves, and all neighboring countries, those which can influence the situation, would have become the guarantors of the agreement", Putin added.
Recall, the international conference on the situation in Syria, Russia offered to organize, will be held in Geneva on June 30. This was announced by a senior official of the Russian Foreign Ministry on the sidelines of the international economic forum in St. Petersburg.
Moscow considers Iran's participation in the conference necessary. Meanwhile, the U.S. insists that Iran should not participate in the conference, citing the fact that there will be discussed the transition to post-Assad period in Syria.
