The West headed for the collapse of Syria. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is sure. He shared his point of view on this issue during a press conference following the meeting of the SCO Council of Foreign Ministers in Beijing today.
«A number of countries have frankly headed for the collapse of Syria. I have already said many times, that the US had made a big deal that their only goal was to drive out terrorists from Syria, to defeat the so-called «terrorists». «The Islamic State»*. In practice, the US is actively settling on the eastern bank of the Euphrates and is not going to leave it, creating local authorities there,» Lavrov assured.
His indignation was also aroused by the words of French President Emmanuel Macron, who had recently said that the US should not leave Syria and that the American coalition must stay there until they create an order in that country that Western countries are comfortable with. According to the Russian minister, this is a frank intervention in the internal affairs of the SAR.
