Syria Resolution Opposed

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said his government continues to oppose a United Nations resolution on Syria.

Lavrov made the statement following talks Friday with his French counterpart, Alain Juppe, who called for a UN resolution urging the Syrian government to end violent crackdowns on protesters and conduct real reforms. France, Britain and Germany have drafted a UN Security Council resolution, but Russia and China have opposed it.

Lavrov also urged the Syrian opposition to stop ignoring the government's calls for talks and engage in dialogue with authorities. He warned against attempts to topple President Bashar Assad's regime, saying it would lead to dangerous consequences.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
