“We always believe that no preconditions for negotiations should not be, as some try to make, and humanitarian aspects should be one of the Central negotiations between the government and the opposition, he said. – We strongly encourage the so-called local cease-fires until, until you have been declared a full ceasefire”.

“We want a ceasefire as the US – continued the Minister. But some countries in the Gulf (Persian) saying, “We will be ready to give a command to those who guided us, to cease fire only if you feel that the political process started and have the prospect of Bashar Assad”. Draw your own conclusions, who really cares about the suffering of civilians, and who wants at any cost, even at the cost of worsening the humanitarian catastrophe, regime change in Syria.”
