Sergei Lavrov Again Challenges the West's Policy on Syria
Russian leaders have repeatedly pointed out that the West, and its Gulf partners, have been encouraging the violence in Syria by arming the so-called opposition. Yet the Western nations, especially through Obama's UN Ambassador Susan Rice, have continued to insist upon Syrian President Bashar Assad's removal, and to demand that Russia abandon support for the country's national sovereignty, and join in the regime-change campaign.
That approach was again denounced by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Aug. 15. According to Reuters, he said Russia would not let Western powers "sabotage" the political transition accord to end the escalating conflict in Syria that was reached in Geneva at the end of June. He accused the Western states of fomenting violence by openly supporting the armed opposition. "We remain convinced that what was achieved in Geneva should not be sabotaged. We will be demanding in the next few days a clear answer from our partners on whether they confirm what they signed in Geneva," he said.
Indeed, after the UNSC ordered the withdrawal of the UN observers, Russia called for a meeting on Aug. 17 of the UN ambassadors from the Geneva Action Group on Syria, which met on June 30. Russia Ambassador Churkin told reporters he wants that group, as well as non members such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, to make "a joint or parallel appeal to all the parties of the Syrian conflict that they end violence as soon as possible by a certain point in time."
