Moscow is extremely alarmed that the European Union is indulging in Ankara’s attempts to change the settlement issue in Syria into a method of force, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.
“Let me remind you that Turkey in particular is not abandoning its attempts and is directly making statements and interfering by using methods of force. Different ideas are pushed forward like some sort of no-fly zones and security zones. It’s very alarming that in the European Union, where it’s impossible not to understand that this is simply an attempt to cover possible Turkish aggression in Syria, and they don’t stop such attempts by Ankara and even to some degree try to indulge in it. This may end very badly,” Lavrov said at a press conference in Moscow.
