Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes there is a chance to begin the political settlement process in Syria.
"The veto [right] is not a privilege but a great responsibility. Thanks to the veto imposed by Russia and China several times we can say that a chance for transition to the political settlement process has emerged in the Syria crisis. And it is absolutely true that the Russia-China veto has prevented Syria\'s transformation into Libya," he said at a Model United Nations session at the MGIMO University on Monday.
