ArmInfo.With the assistance of Iran and Russia, the legitimate Syrian authorities failed to stop the "terrorist infection." At a meeting with students in Yerevan at the Museum-Institute of Ancient Manuscripts "Matenadaran", Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov said, touching the situation in Syria.
"Terrorism has been eradicated practically throughout Syria, there remains only a hotbed in the Idlib zone, which, by agreement between Russia and Turkey, should be destroyed, and the second hotbed remained on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, primarily due to the fact that it remains absolutely not the legitimate presence of the United States. Syria is now a country where the interests of almost all the players clash, but this is not the collapse of the country, and all efforts are aimed at preserving the Syria and respecting its sovereignty and territorial integrity, " the head of the Russian foreign affairs minded.
At the same time, Lavrov stated that they tried to push Syria onto the sad path of Iraq and Libya, which were destroyed. "There is no state in Libya, through it to Africa and to all the other countries of the African continent, first of all, the Sahara-Sahel region is sending huge amounts of smuggled weapons, and in the other direction from Africa and the Middle East to the north, to Europe, through Libya is moving a wave of illegal migrants sweeping across the continent, which is the result of the Libyan adventure. And the result of the Arab adventure was just the creation of an Islamic state, "concluded Lavrov.
