Russia is concerned about attempts by some countries and parties to the conflict in Syria to act contrary to UN Security Council resolutions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.
“We are also seriously concerned about what is happening in Syria, how the UN Security Resolutions are carried out in their entirety. We are concerned about some stakeholders’ both inside and outside Syria attempts to act contrary to the UN Security Council decisions,” Lavrov said at a joint press conference with Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhon.
Moscow would like to remove ambiguity in contradictory statements and actions on the part of the United States and Syria, Lavrov said.
“The White House’s true position regarding the Syrian crisis, the US colleagues’ statements and actions are characterized by well-known inconsistency,” Lavrov said. “[Russia would like to] remove any ambiguity, especially since they directly affect our cooperation with the US in implementing Russian-US agreements.”
Lavrov observed that the Russian-US agreements on Syria were “in limbo.”
“The agreements are now in limbo because of the lack of clarity in the way Washington perceives the approaches of a number of opposition groups,” he explained.
