MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) — Syria is ready to rebuff any foreign military intervention, Syrian Ambassador in Moscow Riad Haddad said on Monday.
“If there a military intervention is undertaken in Syria, it will cause many consequences,” the diplomat said. “The West understands very well that the aggression against Syria will not be easy.”
