MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russia calls on all countries that are involved in supplying arms to Syria to prevent portable air defence systems from getting into hands of armed formations, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“Arms get into hands of jihadists and extremists and this is very dangerous,” he said adding that Russia keeps a close watch on how the situation in Syria develops.
In this respect Lukashevich reiterated the words of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who said “the region is flooded with arms.”
“We call on all countries, which in one way or other are involved in supplying arms to Syria and feeding armed formations, to do their utmost to prevent portable air defence systems from getting into hands of those who openly warned they plan to shoot down civil aircraft,” he said.
