Lavrov: No progress in Syria talks over opposition figures, their sponsors

The only matter agreed in Vienna that has no positive changes is political talks, Russia's top diplomat says

MOSCOW, February 26. /TASS/. The lack of progress at political talks on Syria comes as some Syrian opposition members wish to bargain for privileged position, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday.

“The only matter agreed in Vienna that has no positive changes is political talks,” Lavrov said after a ministerial session of the Russian-Arab Cooperation Forum.

“This comes as certain groups of the regime opponents and their Western sponsors try to bargain for privileged position, to strengthen positions that will create advantages for them over other groups,” he said.

Now real progress has been reached in the humanitarian area and conditions have been agreed for cessation of hostilities. “This group of saboteurs of political talks has no other pretexts left to continue setting preconditions to launch the intra-Syrian dialogue,” Lavrov said.

    The United Nations’ sick honoring of Syria’s butchers
    By Post Editorial Board
    February 26, 2016 | 8:49pm Quote from above article NYPost:
    “If the United Nations was trying to mock itself, it couldn’t have done a better job than it did this week, when it re-elected Syria’s ambassador to a top spot on its Special Committee on Decolonization.
    The panel — set up in 1960 to push for the freedom of European colonies and to oppose “subjugation, domination and exploitation” — re-elected Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari of Syria as rapporteur.
    That’s right: Syria — whose five-year campaign of murder against its own people has taken a toll nearing a half-million lives.
    But Syria’s behavior makes an utter joke of the principles the panel was set up to uphold: “self-determination,” an end to “armed action or repressive measures . . . against dependent peoples” and respect for the “integrity” of national territory.
    On each count, it would be hard to find a worse offender than Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian regime.
    “It is incomprehensible for the UN on one day to lament the regime’s killing and wounding of hundreds of thousands of Syrians,” says UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer, “and to then hand this gift of false legitimacy to the mass murderer Bashar al-Assad.”
    Neuer says the move will let Assad & Co. portray itself as a “human-rights arbiter.””
