Moscow warns against further assistance to Syrian opposition

Financial, technical and military assistance to the Syrian opposition could lead to further violence in the country, a statement released by the Russian Foreign Ministry says.

It was issued in response to reports that the British military bases on Cyprus are being used to help the Free Syrian Army, The Voice of Russia reported.

"Russia has repeatedly said that assisting either side of the Syrian conflict could undermine stability in both Syria and the entire Mideast region", the statement reads.

According to the statement, this kind of assistance lets the opposition forces continue fighting and refuse to join a dialogue on national reconciliation, which violates the UNSC resolutions, and Kofi Annan`s peace plan, as well as the communiqué of the Action Group on Syria released in Geneva on June 30.
