Russia proposes deploying international observers at Turkey’s border with Syria to monitor the situation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Friday.


“Since Turkey itself denies the very existence of the problem, we suggest, not formally at this point, a draft resolution or another decision so that Turkey invites independent international observers to its territory to monitor the actual situation on the border,” Lavrov told reporters.


Russia hopes that the West will be able to get clear answers from Ankara regarding the possibility of deploying observers, he said.


“US officials assure us that they are also concerned about the problem on the border and are working with Ankara to solve it,” Lavrov added.
