Lavrov referred to the June Geneva meeting joint statement. It said any future Syrian transition government "could include members of the present government and the opposition and other groups and shall be formed on the basis of mutual consent."

Washington twisted the language to mean a future Syrian government must exclude Assad. Doing so, of course, disregards the will of most Syrians.

The present government has strong popular support. The longer conflict rages, the more it grows.

On December 9, RIA Novosti headlined "Russia Rules Out Libyan Scenario in Syria." On Sunday, Lavrov said:

"We'll not allow the Libyan experience to be reproduced in Syria. Unfortunately our Western partners have departed from the Geneva accords and are seeking the departure of".Assad."

He added that Syrians alone should choose their government.

Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said Syrian leaders assured Moscow that chemical weapons are secure and won't be used.

"The Syrian government is assuring us that it will not allow their spread," said Patrushev. "We hope that this will be so."

He and Lavrov expressed more concern about foreign elements using them. They seized a chemical facility near Aleppo. Substances it produces can be used for chemical weapons.
