Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned the United States against attacking Syria, saying that if this happens, the consequences will be serious.
In a press conference in Moscow on Tuesday, Lavrov said that the US representative at the Security Council Nikki Haley should be aware that “It is one thing to irresponsibly use a microphone in the UN Security Council and another thing when [both Russian and American] military have channels of communication, and these channels show very clearly what could be done and what cannot be done,” adding that the US coalition knows this very well. Lavrov pointed out that terrorists in Eastern Ghouta continue to fire shells at Damascus, including the Russian Embassy, in blatant violation of Security Council resolution no. 2401, stressing that the terrorists, led by Jabhat al-Nusra, want only to stop the Syrian Arab Army operations so that they can catch their breath.
