Lavrov: UNSC resolution 2254 is the only plan to settle crisis in Syria

Moscow, SANA-Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov affirmed on Wednesday that the only plan to settle the crisis in Syria is what was stated in the UN Security Council resolution No.2254.

In a press conference held in Abkhazia’s capital of Sukhumi, Lavrov said that for Moscow such plan already exists and it was approved long ago, not by the United States but by the United Nations, as it the Security Council resolution No.2254.

“The resolution covers all aspects of a peaceful settlement based on the principle that only the Syrian people have the right to decide on their country’s future.” He added.

When asked if any US plan on Syria had been discussed at his meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Lavrov said “I am confident that there is no alternative to the honest implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254.”

“There are some who do not like the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254 emphasizing the need to respect Syria’s sovereignty and stipulating that only the Syrian people have the right to decide the future of their country,” he said.

“These forces are trying to whip up provocations and create pretexts in order to change the regime instead of resolving the crisis. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and I discussed the Syrian issue in detail,” he added.
