Syria’s neighbours should help end conflict: Putin

June 27th, 2012 - 5:08 am ICT by IANS  

Amman (Jordan), June 27 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Syria’s neighbours, including Iran, should be involved in the settlement of the conflict that has disturbed the country for over a year, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

“I believe that the more Syrian neighbours are involved in the resolution process, the better,” Putin told reporters in Jordan.

He said each neighbour has a certain influence on the forces inside the country.

“Ignoring these possibilities would be counter-productive and would complicate the process,” he said.

Putin also confirmed Russia’s position on the Iranian nuclear issue, which, according to him, “can and should be solved peacefully through negotiations”.

Putin also said the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace agreements were possible.

“I saw that our Israeli partners are willing to make advances to the Palestinian side and Palestinians are certainly willing to resume peace talks if some previous agreements are observed,” he said.
