Helping armed opposition in Syria topple the regime will result in the rise of terrorism in neighboring countries, Russia’s permanent envoy to the UN Vitaly Churkin said speaking during the UNSC debates on the Middle East.

Mr. Churkin stressed that the arms received by illegal armed groups in Syria can be accessed by extremists.

The diplomat reminded the UNSC that Syria`s prior task for today is to persuade all the sides involved in the conflict stoop violence and sit down for talks.
