Russia reiterated yesterday the need to support the efforts to find a political solution to the Syrian crisis in accordance with UN resolution 2254 and to facilitate the return of Syrian refugees to their country and reconstruction, just hours before the launch of the conference «Brussels 3», which will be exploited by the enemies of Syria to incite Arab and European countries not to open to Damascus.
“We support progress in solving the crisis in Syria in accordance with Security Council resolution 2254 and Russia’s actions in this direction are in line with the Astana formula,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a news conference with his Austrian counterpart Karen Kniessel in Moscow.
UN Resolution 2254, adopted in December 2015, affirms that the Syrians are the ones who determine the future of their own country without any outside interference and that the terrorist organizations are outside any political process.
On a parallel line, the Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations in Geneva, Gennady Gatilov, according to the location of channel «Russia Today» electronic, that Moscow will call, during a conference of so-called «donor countries» to help Syria in Brussels, lifting unilateral sanctions on Damascus, Which hinder the reconstruction of the country.
Gattilov pointed out that representatives of the Syrian government were not invited to Brussels, and asked: “How can solve problems related to the reconstruction of Syria in the absence of one of the focal points involved?” He said: Moscow will draw the attention of participants in the Conference to this unfortunate reality.
Lavrov and Gatilov made the remarks three hours before the start of the so-called “Third Session of the Brussels Conference to Support the Future of Syria and the Region”, which was organized by the European Union in cooperation with the United Nations.
According to the agency «Aki» Italian news, the conference will continue for three days, from 12 to 14 this month.
The organizers of the conference, which includes countries that led and supported the war against Syria and continue to impose sanctions on the Syrian people, claim that its goal is to raise additional international funds to continue working on providing humanitarian, relief and development assistance to the Syrians.
The second will be political, with ministers and representatives from 85 countries and regional organizations meeting to discuss the political, developmental and humanitarian aspects of the Syrian crisis.
Aki said the officials gathered in Brussels would use the opportunity to meet with some Arab and European officials who are trying to restore relations with Damascus and quoted a European source as saying: “It is not time for normalization” with Damascus. The agency pointed out that European officials ignore in their conversations and statements on the subject of sanctions imposed on Syria since the beginning of the war in 2011 and its effects on the economic situation of the country and citizens.
In parallel, former Lebanese MP Emile Lahoud, according to the Lebanese National Media Agency, said that “seeing the shape of the Lebanese delegation participating in the Brussels conference, as well as the participation of some Western countries, makes us difficult to resolve whether the conference is for the return of the displaced or the countries that caused the displacement.”
Lahoud said in a statement that “the absence of the first concerned party in this file, the Syrian state, shows that the only intention is to ensure that the displaced people in the countries they left to use as a card when any future development.”
Lebanon is attending a conference in Brussels with a delegation headed by Prime Minister Saad Hariri. According to the new Arab website, which supports the opposition, Hariri will ask for about $ 3 billion, including $ 1 billion for infrastructure, education and other facilities that he says are ” The burden of asylum »!.
