Russia against foreign interference in Syria

Russia against foreign interference in Syria

Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev says that Moscow won't support any United Nations resolutions that would open the way for interference in Syria's internal affairs.
Medvedev said Wednesday that Syrian President Bashar Assad must be given a chance to fulfill his reform promises and warned against foreign interference in the country. Assad has faced a wave of public protests, and has responded with a mass-crackdown.
Medvedev said that Russia hasn't been happy with the way the West has used the U.N. resolution on Libya. He said that Russia won't support such resolution about Syria.
Russia abstained in the U.N. vote that sanctioned the international military operation in Libya and voiced concern about civilian casualties and excessive use of force since the operation began.
