Lavrov Accuses US of Protecting Al Nusra Front (Al Qaeda) Terrorists in Syria

  • Published on Jun 26, 2017
    The Russian foreign minister has harshly criticized the US-led coalition in Syria, saying it’s protecting al-Nusra Front terrorists operating in the Arab country. Lavrov said the US appears to have been protecting foreign-backed militants such as Nusra Front from aerial bombardment. During a press conference with his Ethiopian counterpart in Moscow, Lavrov stressed that the coalition’s move violates all international law. The top Russian diplomat also underlined the need to eliminate double standards regarding the fight against terrorism. Washington has recently come under severe criticism after American warplanes shot down a Syrian government jet near the Syrian city of Tabqa and a drone in the country’s south. Moscow has said the attacks were yet another sign that the United States is complicit in the acts of terror groups in Syria.
