Russia slams bid to mislead international community on Syria

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov

The Russian Foreign Minister has condemned efforts by certain Western countries for a regime change in Syria by misleading the international community and manipulating the UN Security Council.

Addressing the United Nation Security Council during a meeting about the Middle East, Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that no conclusion can be achieved on Syria by misleading the international community, adding that a stable settlement can be achieved only through dialogue between the government and the opposition.

Lavrov also rejected military intervention in Syria and said that any foreign interference would jeopardize regional stability.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called on Russia and China to stand behind resolving what she called the humanitarian and political crisis in Syria. Russia and China have twice vetoed UN Security Council resolutions against the Syrian government.

"We believe that now is the time for all nations - even those who have previously blocked our efforts - to stand behind the humanitarian and political approach spelled out by the Arab League," Clinton told the UNSC meeting in New York in a clear reference to China and Russia.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March and many people have lost their lives in the violence.

The West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of killing protesters. But Damascus blames ''outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups'' for the unrest, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
