Moscow, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin reaffirmed the necessity to not interfere in Syria’s internal affairs by any foreign party.
Interviewed by Russian Novosti News Agency, Vershinin noted that the statements by some officials abroad on issues related to the internal Syrian affairs, particularly with regard to the Committee of Discussing the Constitution and the constitutional entitlements is a confiscation of the Syrians’ right to decide their future and a destabilization of the work of the Syrian state institutions.
“Despite of the negative factors and the restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus, the Committee of Discussing the Constitution continues its work in Geneva, and the fifth round of the meetings is scheduled to be held late this month,” Vershinin added.
He asserted that the International Security Council’s resolution No. 2254 and the rules of the work of the committee impose in a direct way the necessity to push the political process which is led and implemented by the Syrians forwards without any foreign interference and without imposing artificial timetables.
The fourth round of the meetings of the Committee of Discussing the Constitution was held in the period between November 30th and October 4th last year with the participation of the national delegation, and it tackled several issues including the national principles, the file of the return of the refugees and the rejection of any separatist scheme for the Syrian territory, in addition to the humanitarian file and the necessity to handle it urgently.
On the other hand, Vershinin denounced the unilateral coercive measures imposed on Syria in light of the spread Coronavirus, stressing that these measures escalated the humanitarian, social and economic problems in the country.
Vershinin warned of the new terrorist escalation in the areas of Idlib, Deir Ezzor and the North after the stabilization of the field situation in the country, referring to the crimes committed by terrorist organizations and militias supported by the US and Turkish occupations.
