Sputnik: Russia Believes Syrian Conflict Has No Military Solution
Russia is firmly convinced that there is no military solution to the Syrian conflict and is ready to cooperate with the United States and other Western countries on the crisis settlement, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Tuesday.
BEIJING (Sputnik) — On October 3, US State Department deputy spokesman John Kirby announced that Washington was cutting off participation in bilateral channels with Russia on sustaining a ceasefire agreement in Syria.
"It is our firm belief that there is no military solution to the Syrian conflict. It is necessary to give up all political ambitions and sit down at the negotiating table.

We are ready for such work with our US and other Western counterparts," Antonov told a press conference in Beijing.
