Sergey Lavrov: “U.S. acts in Syria constitute a threat on Syria’ territorial integrity”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the unilateral acts of the USA constitute a threat on Syria’s territorial integrity.

During a press conference with his Belgian counterpart Didier Reynders held in Moscow Tuesday, Lavrov said that the USA, which has troops in Syria without getting any official invitation, adding that the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in several occasions that the presence of US troops in Syria is to combat the terrorist organization of Daesh “yet the latest US acts and what we hear of new objectives on staying in the country for keeping up with the political process accepted by it stir doubts that it aims to stay in the country for a long period of time if not forever.”

Lavrov pointed out that “the Americans have taken dangerous unilateral steps in the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, which seems to be an approach for undermining Syria’s territorial integrity.”

Maria Zakharova: “U.S. military presence in Syria is serious threat to security stability in the country”

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova affirmed that the US military presence in Syria poses dangerous threat to the political process and territorial integrity of the country.

“The US illegal military presence on the Syrian lands is dangerous challenge before realizing safety and security there and preserving its territorial integrity,” Zakharova said at a weekly press conference on Thursday.

She added that the US exploits the pretext of the chemical weapons to undermine the political settlement to the crisis, saying that the US seems to be depending, in the previous period upon infiltrating uncertain information by some sides and other topics without any confirmed facts.

The Spokeswoman went on to say that the US destabilizes the conditions in Syria and the entire region through supporting the terrorist groups, and it seeks to foil the Syrian-Syrian Dialogue Congress of Sochi and under-estimate its outcomes.

She reiterated her country’s unremitting support to the political settlement process to resolve the Syrian crisis.
