Russia may change its position towards Syria if it sees any “cheating” from President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, a senior Kremlin official said on Saturday.
“I am speaking theoretically and hypothetically, but if we become convinced that Assad is cheating, we can change our position,” the Kremlin chief of staff Sergei Ivanov was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies, according to Agence France-Presse.
He was speaking at a conference in Stockholm organized by the International Institute for Strategic Studies.
Ivanov did not clarify his remarks but repeated Russia’s objection to a military intervention in the country.
On Saturday, Syria completed the handover of an inventory of its chemical arsenal by a deadline laid out in a U.S.-Russian disarmament plan, the world’s chemical weapons watchdog said.
