Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
Washington's possible military action against Syria without the UN Security Council's approval will roughly violate the basic rules of international law and the UN Charter, says the statement of the Russian Embassy in Armenia.
The possible military strike against Syria will have disastrous consequences both for the country and for the region. It will result in intensification of the radical terrorist groups' activities, aggravation of ethnic and religious contradictions, and escalation of the humanitarian crisis in Syria and the neighboring countries.
The Russian Embassy stresses that the United States' possible military strike against Damascus runs counter to the Russian-U.S. arrangements to speed up efforts to prepare for the Geneva international conference on Syria.
"The Russian assessments about the U.S. possible military action against Syria have been expressed in Russian President Vladimir Putin's Aug 31 answers to journalists' questions in Vladivostok and Putin's interview with the First Channel and the Associated Press on Sept 4", says the statement.
