Lavrov: Moscow and Tehran support Syria's sovereignty

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, his Iranian and Syrian counterparts, Javad Zarif and Walid Muallem have commented on the situation in Syria during a joint press conference in Moscow Oct. 28.

Lavrov said that Moscow and Tehran support Syria's sovereignty, the fight against terrorism and the restoration of the country's economy. Moscow, Tehran and Damascus agree that the Syrian peaceful settlement has no alternatives, Sputnik reported.

The Russian FM said that the Syrian delegation is ready to leave for Geneva to hold negotiations tomorrow. “It is important to restore political dialogue in Syria. We favor a political and diplomatic solution to the Syrian crisis. There is no other way,” he added.

Lavrov urged the UN "not to listen to the hysterical campaign of lies regarding what is currently happening in Aleppo in the humanitarian sphere."

"We could not ignore, to say the least, not professional enough work of UN humanitarian missions. Their inaction allowed the so-called local council in eastern Aleppo to disrupt the medical evacuation, on which they themselves insisted”, said the Russian minister.
