MOSCOW, January 31 (RIA Novosti) – Russia will render all possible assistance to encourage the dialog between the Syrian government and the opposition, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow said Friday.
The United Nations mediator in the ongoing negotiations, Lakhdar Brahimi, announced earlier in the day that the talks in Geneva will resume on February 10.
“Russia, in cooperation with the UN and other international partners, will render maximum assistance to efforts aimed at forging a comprehensive political solution, based on mutual consent between the sides,” the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry said that other states involved in the multinational reconciliation talks should encourage the government and the opposition to compromise.
Russia also pledged to continue its aid to the war-torn country, both bilaterally and via international organizations.
