The rebels said that Russia seeks to “neutrality” against Assad

Russia is committed to the position of “neutrality” against President Bashar al-Assad, but that trying to prevent the Syrian government and Iran. This was stated by the head of the delegation of the rebels at the talks in Astana, which will be held January 23, Mohammad Aloush, reports Reuters.

According to him, Moscow could not put pressure on Iran and the Syrian government to stop “violations of current ceasefire in Syria”, which declares the opposition.

“This is a test of the strength of Russia and its impact on the regime [of Bashar al-Assad. —] on Iran as the guarantor of the peace agreement. So if she fails in this, followed by larger gaps,” said ALOS.
