MOSCOW, (SANA)_Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that Western attempts to interfere in Syria outside the UN Security Council mandate will lead to dire consequences witha spillover that will affect the entire ME region and the new world order.
RT television quoted Lavrov as saying during a press conference on Thursday that the attempts of some countries to impose political stances on the UNSC that overstep the outcomes of the internal Syrian dialogue, which seek a regime change in Syria go against the UNSC powers and the UN Charter that stipulate non-interference in the internal affairs of sovereign countries.
Lavrov said that Western countries are pushing for a Libya-style solution in Syria by siding with one party and encouraging the Syrian opposition to reject dialogue with the Syrian government.
He added that Russia shares the view of rejecting violence and adopting dialogue with many countries which realize the dangers surrounding the developments of the situation, especially that the crisis in Syria takes a center stage at international meetings.
Lavrov said that Russia is taking all necessary measures to ensure the clarity of the UNSC resolutions as no one can guarantee that Western countries won't interpret vague texts the way they want as what happened in Libya.
Lavrov pointed to the Western rejection of Geneva communiqué, adding ''the U.S. has refused the communiqué because it didn't contain threats, one-sided assessments and sanctions. It contained a balanced approach aimed at stopping violence.''
He added that the UN Security Council has passed two resolutions on Syria, as well as the communiqué adopted by the action group which convened in Geneva on June 30.
Lavrov cast doubt on the credibility of Western stances as Russia sticks to its commitments.
He warned against a legal confusion in dealing with the crisis in Syria that is an internal conflict not one between two countries, ''that's why there is no legal grounds for interference in favor of one side, but all sides should be pressured to stop fighting immediately and sit at the negotiating table.''
Lavrov said that as Russia is working with the Syrian government that is repeatedly signaling readiness for a simultaneous end of violence, the West is prodding the opposition to refuse dialogue, adding that the US stance might be tied to internal agendas, especially the presidential elections.
Lavrov blamed the West for thwarting political solution through pushing the opposition to reject dialogue, adding ''Instead of launching the negotiating process according to the Security Council resolutions, the outside opposition holds on to the demand of toppling the Syrian regime wherein lies, in addition to encouraging the armed opposition to reject dialogue, the source of violence and suffering of the Syrian people.''
