MOSCOW, March 13 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed concern that weapons may fall into hands of Al Qaeda.
“By the way, weapons flow to the opposition for the Free Syrian Army or other such groups through the territory of nighbouring countries and these are not only small arms, but also more serious things. But let’s not forget that if the reports about presence of Al Qaeda in Syria, and this is most probably so, correspond to reality, then weapons may fall into the hands of this terrorist organization,” he said.
Lavrov recalled that in compliance with the UN Security Council resolutions all member-states of the organization should ban not only any supplies to, but also any contacts with Al Qaeda at all.
The diplomat called for “concentrating efforts to develop a monitoring mechanism as a practical instrument for launching a ceasefire regime.”
