MOSCOW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russia will not allow the creation of a no-fly zone over Syria, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Monday.

He added that Russia’s position on no-fly zones was clear and fundamental.

“All these maneuvers linked to no-fly zones and various kinds of humanitarian corridors are a direct consequence of disrespect for international law. Libya was a concrete example of how such zones are introduced and how such decisions are implemented. We do not want the scenario to repeat with regards to the Syrian conflict. We are not going to allow this scenario in principle,” Lukashevich explained.

The diplomat said that all claims and assertions that the American colleagues were carrying out preparatory works in the territory of Jordan were also direct violations of international law.

"We will adhere to our stance,” Lukashevich emphasized.
