Lavrov vows to protect Syria from foreign interference

Russia will not support any decisions at the UN Security Council that could justify foreign interference in Syria’s affairs. This was announced by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an interview for China’s Central Television.

Russia’s Foreign Minister reminded that at an international conference in Geneva in June, permanent members of the Security Council, the European Union and leading countries of the Middle East reached agreement on a resolution of the Syrian conflict, which presupposed putting pressure on all parties to the conflict, urging them to end violence and start negotiations.

Lavrov deemed unfeasible proposals that proceed from the fact that the country’s government will begin the process towards a truce with a unilateral withdrawal of troops from the cities. “This approach is unrealistic, since it is, in point of fact, an appeal to the government for unilateral surrender. Those who call for it, are either naive, or seek to provoke a military intervention,” concluded the Minister.
