Moscow not holding discussion on Syria’s federalization- Russian Foreign Ministry
Media reports about the ongoing discussions on federalization of Syria between Russia and the West, does not correspond to reality, Moscow has not put forwarded such an idea, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, special representative of Russian President for Middle East and North Africa Affairs Mikhail Bogdanov told Tass.
"It is an absolute lie, we have not suggested such an idea, such ideas must suggest Syrians themselves and they should hold discussions and come to an agreement.
Yes, the issues of state structure should be decided by Syrians, develop a constitution, to determine their own land management, the mechanism of forming the government”, he said.
Bogdanov stressed that in their opinion the best option is to preserve the integrity of Syria and the unity of the nation but they do not interfere in any way and do not express a clear position.
