TASS – March 17, 2018: Plans on Syrian division should be foiled immediately, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with Kazakh President’s TV and radio broadcasting company.
“I think we should not even discuss a potential division of Syria, but claim that those plans should be immediately foiled (as someone orchestrates it), this is our obligation,” he said.
Hope has emerged that armed groups Faylaq al-Rahman, Jaish al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham will shun Jebhat al-Nusra (terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) in Eastern Ghouta, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
“It took long for this process to start, currently some hope has emerged that those armed groups will shun Jebhat al-Nusra,” he said.
Special ops forces of the United States, Britain, France and other countries are active on the Syrian territory.
“Special ops forces of the United States (they no longer deny it), Britain, France and some other countries are ‘on the ground’, meaning it is not so much of a ‘proxy war,’ but a direct involvement in the war,” he said.
