Lavrov: The United States is undermining the territorial integrity of Syria

25
The Russian authorities believe that the United States wants to stay in Syria for a long time, if not forever.


In general, we have such suspicion on some grounds, of which I will say that the United States wants to stay there for a long time, if not forever.
- Lavrov said at a press conference following talks with his Belgian counterpart Didier Reinders.

Lavrov: The United States is undermining the territorial integrity of Syria


According to Lavrov, the United States used to declare that the sole purpose of their armed forces staying in Syria is to fight ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation), after the defeat of the terrorists, the Americans explain their stay in Syria differently.

They say that this presence must be maintained until not only military tasks are resolved, but also until a stable political process begins, which should end in an acceptable transition for all, read for the United States, the transfer of power, i.e. mode change
- said Lavrov.

According to the minister, Russia "in general, lately, has a lot of questions to the US actions in Syria."

These actions are carried out without an invitation, as a matter of fact, and not only the actions of the United States, but of the entire coalition led by the Americans
- recalled Lavrov.

In addition, US actions in Syria are dangerous, aimed at undermining the country's territorial integrity and point to attempts to create a quasi-state east of the Euphrates, Lavrov added.

Americans, in my opinion, are trying to act through dangerous unilateral steps. And by the way, these steps are looking more and more as part of the line to create some kind of quasi-state in large parts of Syrian territory - on the east coast of the Euphrates and right up to the Iraqi border.
- said Lavrov

According to him, this is “more and more like a line to undermine the territorial integrity of Syria.”

The Russian Foreign Minister recalled that, with the participation of the United States, the authorities in Damascus are being created in Syria.

Funds are sent there to ensure that these authorities function and equip law enforcement agencies, which again arise with the support of the Americans
- said Lavrov.

The minister added that these questions were raised several times before the American side, but Moscow never received any clear answers.

    The statement is very harsh for the diplomat. They are rarely so straightforward ...

      Direct application for direct, not masked actions! How much can you say that they will do it if you are frankly shitting !? They shit - they fertilize the territory for nurturing terrorists ... And oil!

        Diplomacy is the ability to covertly call your "vis-a-vis" a humus-like creature in such a way as to collect aviation, and not slap in the open! And its straightforwardness is a consequence of a lack of organization, or patience. That doesn't paint him at all.

          To each his own, Here he’s right. on the other hand, the press conference of Lavrov and Reynders was about an hour and it is not purposeful to spread everything here.

      Something is not visible requirements for the withdrawal of troops, the sanction against the United States for aggression against a sovereign power.

    How! Got it! In my opinion, the site understood this a long time ago that the United States will not leave Syria peacefully on its own! Maybe someone from the website called the Foreign Ministry and told Lavrov their thoughts?

    it is not clear what connected Lavrov with the Britons and Jews, how many times they threw us through a pipiska and he tries to foist on them all some "offers"; Is it really possible to spend your talent and mind it is not possible to apply it to other countries - China, India, and the countries of Latin America, but there is a lot of deep work there; but no, he again climbs to these scammers; Obama Keri drove him by the nose for three years, and now the Rex will hang noodles on his ears

    we have such a suspicion
    What a suspicious one. and before it was preoccupied. A few more years, and possibly deal with their direct responsibilities.

      Not. he is a very smart Armenian. And literate. And experienced. It works within the framework set by the GDP and power in general.

    All Syrian forces should unite and strike at the American occupation forces. Arrange the villains of a second Vietnam.

      Be bogged down, the United States retaliated with tomahawks from the Mediterranean - and there is no Syria. From the word in general.

    Moscow will not receive any answers. To get them you need to be strong and not corrupt. Neither one nor the other threatens us. Soon everyone will start sending us in the forest, some have already started. Refute who does not agree.

    I certainly apologize, but until mattress toppers begin to die en masse in Syria for a variety of reasons, they cannot be swept out of there with a nasty broom

    Why don't we create some kind of opposition ourselves? Which would fight against everyone, but for us? But not only in Syria, but also in Afghanistan. And let the striped wet!

    It has been clearly stated that the American "Kurdish" project in Syria is unacceptable for the Russian Federation. It is unacceptable for all other neighbors of Syria - for Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan. That is, Russia is creating a powerful coalition, which will bring down the American colonial project - and will fail! An absolutely correct and clear strategic position. Arabs and Chinese will also be against the imperial backswing of the United States. This is a big force and a lot of money.
