West unwilling to intervene in Syrian conflict - Lavrov

Russia's and China's opposition to the idea of foreign intervention in Syria seems to be favored by other players involved in the efforts to settle the crisis, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"There is the impression that nobody has the appetite for foreign intervention. It even seems sometimes that they are praying that Russia and China should continue blocking a sanction for foreign intervention. Because as soon as there is such a sanction, they will have to act, and no one is prepared to act there," Lavrov told journalists on board a plane following an EU-Russia summit on Saturday.

"We are convinced that, after our partners so outrageously handled the resolution on Libya, the UN Security Council should not make any ambiguous decisions anymore," Lavrov said.
