Lavrov on Kerry’s Statements: Russia Gave No Promises to Anyone on Syria

Russia has given nobody any promises regarding Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday commenting on recent statements by US Secretary of State John Kerry, Sputnik news agency reported.

Kerry stated earlier in the week that Russia must understand that Washington has "very limited" patience left in regard to Syria ceasefire violations.

The foreign minister said he was surprised by Kerry's statements and urged the United States to show more patience in regard to Syria.

"First of all, we have not promised anyone to do anything. We have given no promises to anyone, but agreed that everyone working on the Syrian settlement will be guided by agreements reached by the International Syria Support Group, which have been written down in UN Security Council Resolutions," Lavrov said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
