Earlier, Federation Council Chairwoman Valentina Matvienko said after meetings with leaders of Saudi Arabia that Russia remained opposed to toppling Bashar Assad's regime from the outside.

"We know Saudi Arabia's position that Syria will not see peace until President Bashar Assad is removed from power, but we stated our position that we do not aim to preserve Assad at any cost -  we are against the forcible overthrow of regimes from the outside," "Matvienko told reporters, stressing that it was up to the people of Syria to decide the fate of Assad.

In her opinion, Assad's removal from power does not guarantee peace in Syria, but may exacerbate the situation even further.
