Russia, China warn against foreign intervention in Syria

Russia and China believe that foreign intervention in Syria will lead to unpredictable consequences.

Russian and Chinese Foreign Ministers Sergei Lavrov and Yang Jiechi made this statement during a telephone conversation on Thursday.

The two leaders urged the Syrian parties to put an immediate end to violence and ‘launch’ a dialogue without any preconditions.

Sergei Lavrov and Yang Jiechi outlined steps in the direction of this goal, a Russian foreign ministry report says.

Russia and China have blocked two Security Council resolutions that pave the way to foreign interference in Syria’s domestic affairs.

Syria became a scene of bloody clashes nearly one year ago.

According to the UN, more than 5,000 people have been killed in Syria since then.

The Syrian authorities say that the country’s army and security forces have to deal not with political opposition but with terrorists who receive weapons and funds from abroad.
