MOSCOW, October 18 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow will watch the investigation on arms supplies to the Syrian opposition through the Turkish port of Iskenderun, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“Reports have been confirmed that weapons were supplied to the Syrian opposition aboard a Libyan ship through the Turkish port of Iskenderun,” Lukashevich said. “We believe that the U.N. Sanctions Committee should thoroughly study the incident and take measures in order to avoid the violation of sanctions in the future,” the diplomat stressed.
At the same time, Lukashevich said he is satisfied with the fact that the U.N. Security Council Sanctions Committee “has started taking corresponding steps in this aspect. We will watch the investigation”.
