Lavrov: Any foreign presence in Syria without government’s consent violates international law

foreign presence in Syria
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed that any foreign presence on Syria’s soil and it its airspace without the approval of the Syrian government violates international law.

Lavrov said in a press conference with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi in Amman on Monday that “Since the very beginning, we have consistently taken a very clear stance. Everyone who is on the Syrian soil or in Syria’s airspace without the consent of the Syrian government violates the international law,” Lavrov said.

“Russia, as well as the representatives of Iran, including the representatives of the Hezbollah movement, is working here upon a direct invitation of Syria’s legitimate authorities,” he said.

However, “some unwelcome guests with arms in their hands are in Syria’s territory,” Lavrov said, in reference to the US. “As we saw a possibility to cooperate with them in the war on terror in the interests of all Syrian citizens, such contacts were established,” he added.
