Russia says USA should respect Syrian Sovereignty after downing of Syrian warplane




Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov commented on the US-led coalition’s attack on a Syrian army’s warplane in Raqqa. “Russia calls on the United States to coordinate actions in Syria and avoid unilateral actions” Lavrov said.
He commented on the US’ boosting of its presence in southern Syria, saying that all actions in Syria need to be coordinated with legitimate Syrian authorities.



“We call on the United State and all others who have their forces or advisors on the ground [in Syria] to ensure the coordination in our work. Zones of de-escalation are one of the possible options to jointly move forward. We call on everyone to avoid unilateral moves, respect Syrian sovereignty and join our common work which is agreed with the Syrian Arab Republic’s government,” the Russian foreign minister said.

Moscow calls on Washington to respect Syrian territorial integrity and the country’s sovereignty, the Russian top diplomat said.

“As for the events on the ground in the Syrian Arab Republic, … it is necessary to fully respect sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria. Therefore, any actions on the ground, and there are many involved parties, including those who carry out military operations, must be coordinated with Damascus,” Lavrov said.
