How the BRICS Can Help End War in Syria and Establish a New, Just World Order
GOA (Sputnik) – Russia's President Vladimir Putin laid down Moscow's position on the conflict in Syria and on the US approach to it during the restricted meeting with BRICS leaders in India's Goa, Deputy Foreign Minister and Russia's BRICS Sherpa Sergey Ryabkov told Sputnik.

"During the restricted meeting [with BRICS leaders] Putin made clear our position on Syria and our assessment of the US policy [on Syria]," Ryabkov said.

He added that this was not reflected in the final Goa declaration except the broad mentioning of the need to counter terrorism, as Russia does not seek to push forward its agenda using the BRICS format.

"We should not force anyone. As earlier, we follow the path that is comfortable for everyone, and there are no grounds to believe that BRICS is going to turn into the instrument for solving current foreign policy problems. Member states have different agendas and priorities," Ryabkov said.

Russia in Syria 'Indefinitely': What It is All About
Syria's civil war between government forces and a wide range of insurgents, including terrorists groups and opposition forces, has raged for some five years and has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.

On September 9, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled a new peace plan to address the conflict. The ceasefire deal was later shattered by numerous violations, which resulted in intensified fighting between the Syrian government and militants in Aleppo.
