Russia, Syria Renew Call on US to Avoid Strikes
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Russia and Syria urged the United States on Monday to focus on efforts to convene a peace conference and not on military action.
The issue was announced by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Monday after talks with Syria's foreign minister.
Lavrov said a US military strike on Syria could lead to the spread of terrorism, Reuters reported.
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Mualem accused President Barack Obama of backing terrorists, drawing comparisons with the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001.
