Moscow‘s policy on Syria has not changed (Russia’s FM)

14 December 2012

MOSCOW (TAP) – The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday downplayed earlier comments made by the ministry’s Deputy Head in which he suggested that the Syrian opposition could win the civil war raging in the country.

The ministry said Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov had not made any statements or conducted “special interviews” with journalists over the past few days regarding Syria.

The Syrian conflict was discussed at a roundtable in Moscow on Thursday, attended by Bogdanov, where speakers cited the Syrian opposition’s statements about their inevitable victory, the Ministry explained in the carefully worded statement.

The Foreign Ministry said that Bogdanov had reiterated Russia’s position: Moscow wants to see a political solution to the crisis in Syria.
