Russia rejects military intervention in Syria

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Wednesday said his country rejects military intervention in Syria, adding that Russia hopes to avoid any measure of military intervention in Syria in the forthcoming meeting of Friends of Syria in Istanbul.

Speaking at press conference following a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Lavrov said “We do not struggle to change the regime. We don’t support such activities but further dialogue between the regime and the opposition.”

Lavrov warned that the Syrian tragedy will continue, the massacre will continue and the al-Qaida will emerge if the military intervention takes place.
