MOSCOW, September 15 (RIA Novosti) The Russian-US deal on Syria, reached on Saturday, does not mean that Washington has dropped plans to impose regime change in Damascus, a senior Russian lawmaker said.
The agreement on Syria should not create any illusions: it has hampered the US military strike but it does not mean the refusal from a regime change in Syria, Alexei Pushkov, who heads the international affairs committee of the Russian parliaments lower house, said on Twitter.
Pushkov added that the deal deprives the Syrian rebels of the opportunity to use chemical weapons for provocations. Now it will be clear that only they could have done this, he said.
After weeks of intense diplomacy and almost three days of talks in Geneva between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his US counterpart John Kerry, the United States and Russia reached a landmark deal Saturday that will see all chemical weapons in war-torn Syria brought under international control and destroyed by mid-2014.
Pushkov said Saturday the deal was only a step towards a political solution to the conflict, and its implementation might stall if Moscow and Washington disagree on several key issues.
