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.
