27th May 2011, Comments 0 comments

Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev said Friday he does not back international sanctions against the Syrian regime, but called on President Bashar al-Assad to push forward with reform.

"We are not supporters of sanctions," Medvedev told reporters after the close of the G8 summit. "Sanctions are by far not the best method."

But he added: "President Assad should switch from words to actions and conduct real democratic reforms."
