Russian FM slams US “double standards” in Syria

The Russian foreign minister accuses the United States and its allies of fatal provocations against the Russian troops in Syria.

In an interview with the UK-based Asharq al-Awsat newspaper, Sergei Lavrov said the US-led coalition and the militants they support consistently act in a way that helps Daesh and other terrorist groups.

Lavrov criticized Washington’s double standards regarding Syria, noting that there were no such thing as good or bad terrorists. He defended Russia’s involvement in the battle against terrorists in Syria. He also hailed the cooperation between Moscow, Ankara and Tehran as a decisive factor in restoring stability in the region.

Lavrov slammed the US sanctions against Russia, warning that such aggressive measures won’t go unanswered.
