LAVROV: THE U.S. FORCES PRESENCE IN SYRIA ILLEGAL

Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, reiterated on Friday, the illegality of the US military presence in Syria.

A US task force and other units are illegally staying in Syria, without any invitation from the legitimate government, or a United Nations Security Council mandate, Lavrov said, in an interview with Euronews.

Obviously, the United States has some strategy, which, I think, is geared to keep its military presence in Syria forever, Lavrov added.

They are seeking to do the same in Iraq and in Afghanistan, in spite of all their previous promises.

They [the United States] seem to be seeking to isolate a vast part of the Syrian territory from the rest of the country, in violation of Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, he went on to say.

The Russian Foreign Minister discussed with his Egyptian counterpart, Sameh Shoukry, the latest developments in Syria.

The Russian Foreign Ministry stated that, Lavrov and Shoukry talked about the key political issues on the regional agenda, concentrating on the crisis in Syria.

The statement said, the two ministers also discussed the latest developments in the Egyptian-Russian relations.

Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, Ahmed Abu Zaid, said that, Lavrov detailed Russia’s evaluation of the current situation, regarding the process of political settlement of the crisis in Syria, and the outcome of the Syrian National Dialogue Congress, held in Sochi.
