Bogdanov: Syria will be destroyed if Geneva-2 fails
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov warned that Syria will be "destroyed" if the Geneva international conference sponsored by the US and Russia fails to resolve the two-year-old crisis between President Bashar Assad and rebels. The conference was supposed to take place in May. It was postponed when the two sponsors failed to agree on representatives to be invited. It is now expected to be held next month. Turning up the heat on Washington, Bogdanov said Tuesday: “If the Geneva conference fails, nothing but one scenario will remain: war and Syria’s complete destruction.” He spoke in a joint interview with the Lebanese An-Nahar and Kuwaiti Al-Anba. Bogdanov is the Russian official who last month relayed Moscow’s blessing to Hizballah’s entry to the Syrian war on the side of the Assad regime..
