Russia Calls on US to Stop Supporting Terrorists, Including in E Ghouta : Lavrov

US Supporting Terrorists
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has urged the US-led coalition to stop supporting terrorists in Syria and especially in Eastern Ghouta, where tensions have been running high over the past time.

"Speaking about Syria, I want to say that we will continue to fight terrorists, we will defeat them, we will help to defeat them in Eastern Ghouta, where the Syrian army is carrying out anti-terrorist operations with our support," Lavrov added.

The minister also noted that Moscow would make "humanitarian exceptions," meaning that those who want to exit the combat area and receive humanitarian aid can use the humanitarian corridors, as it was announced earlier by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The minister also stressed that it is impossible to protract the process of political settlement in Syria, in addition to continuing fight against terrorists and solving of humanitarian problems, issues to which the parties to the conflict could contribute more, Lavrov said.

Russia, Iran and Turkey will formulate recommendations for Damascus and the Syrian opposition following the meeting in Astana, Lavrov added.
