Lavrov: Attempts to Disrupt Geneva-2 Violate Will of World Community
The attempts to upset a Geneva-2 conference are a blatant violation of the will of the world community, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.
Asked about reports on Saudi Arabia's intention to boycott the conference on Syria, if President Bashar Assad runs in the elections, the minister said that he was "unaware of this statement by representatives of Saudi Arabia".
The initiative of the conference was supported by UN Security Council Resolution 2118 and "under the UN Charter is compulsory for the fulfillment by all UN states," Lavrov said in Tehran.
"Someone finds it more productive and quicker to settle the problem… through a foreign intervention, but I did not receive any confirmation to these words," he added.
