ArmInfo.Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called illegal the U.S. actions in Syria.
So, on November 11 at a joint press conference with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan, answering the corresponding question, Lavrov, in particular, said: "I do not have time to follow the ever-changing zigzags of American politics. Their attempt, in the grand scheme of things, to rob Syria and take control of the oil fields, is unlawful and does not bring anything good to the Syrian settlement. It only creates an additional serious irritant, a serious threat to this part of Syria. We will insist that max the Syrian army occupied the entire territory of its state very quickly. Only this will help put a reliable end to terrorism and resolve all issues related to a final political settlement. "
Earlier, leader of the U.S. Donald Trump said that the U.S. authorities would not allow militants to regain control of oil fields in northeastern Syria and intend to take the control of them. Then it became known that the U.S. Department of Defense is sending additional forces and funds to northeast Syria to protect oil fields from militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization .
