On Syrian Crisis

Russia will seek to establish a political dialogue in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday.

“We will definitely seek to establish a political dialogue. We will seek to launch real work on a constitutional process to draft the main law of the country, and normalize the situation on the basis,” Putin told a press conference.

According to Putin, the prospects of resolving the situation in Syria depend on whether the sides to the conflict want to settle all issues.

“The situation is difficult. The prospects of resolution depend on the warring sides, on their inner desire to achieve a settlement, to achieve it and preserve the territorial integrity and the unity of their countries,” Putin told a press conference.
