I think there will definitely be intervention and it will not be pretty. Syria will not just lay down but NATO will prevail.
Mr Lavrov also repeated calls for an international conference to implement the peace plan drawn up by UN special envoy Kofi Annan.
The Group of Twenty Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (also known as the G-20, G20, and Group of Twenty) is a group of finance ministers and central bank governors from 20 major economies: 19 countries plus the European Union, which is represented by the President of the European Council and by the European Central Bank. The G-20 heads of government or heads of state have also periodically conferred at summits since their initial meeting in 2008. Collectively, the G-20 economies account for more than 80 percent of the gross world product (GWP), 80 percent of world trade (including EU intra-trade), and two-thirds of the world population. They furthermore account for 84.1 percent and 82.2 percent of the world's economic growth by nominal GDP and GDP (PPP) respectively from the years 2010 to 2016, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
IRAN AND AFGHANISTAN
The joint statement was issued on the last day of the two-day annual summit of the SCO, made up of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Iran, India, Pakistan and others attend the summits, but not as full members.
The six leaders also warned that "any attempts to solve the Iranian problem by force are not acceptable and lead to unpredictable consequences, threatening stability and security in the region and in the world as a whole".

Economically we are nation building as the IMF, and we are looking for economic opportunities as the G20.
And also, by being a supposed opposition, assisting China and Russia with firming up a coalition for the global balance of power.
And the reason we need that is to prevent monopolies, and corporate domination of industry leading to price fixing and all the usual games of conquest in high finance. We need to preserve the free market system, and isolate that from politics, by dividing politics into two major global bodies as opposed to one New World Order.
You see in the NWO it leads to giant corporations, monopolies and a lack of innovation and a lack of opportunity. We have just finished fixing capitalism, hurray for us, we all deserve a kudo for that. It is now in a state of nature whereby supply and demand are the dominating market factors.
