BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:12 A.M.) – TASS reported that Western countries are too focused on an idea of ousting Syrian President Bashar Assad and this brings the political settlement in the country to a dead end, Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in an interview with Yahoo Global News.

“To my mind, the main idea of the West is just ‘Assad must go.’ That is the concept. That is something the Western world is focused on and probably, it does not have any desire to somehow manage the situation in a political track,” Zakharova said.

“It’s not the way out, this is the dead end,” she stressed.

She then went onto emphasize that only experts and not journalists or diplomats should be in charge of investigating the chemical attack that happened earlier this month in Idlib province.

“I think there are special people, who have to deal with this situation. Not you, not me, not journalists, not politicians, not business people, not teachers, not students. But specialists who are just in charge of giving reports to the international community on what has happened. That is what we are proposing and insisting on. Just to bring a group of specialists to Syria and let them do their job, and let them bring all the information back to the Security Council.”

“Our decisions, our conclusions should be based on real evidence,” she stressed, warning against repeating the 2003 Iraq scenario.
