MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - Russia hopes that the U.N. Security Council will condemn Kurds’ slaughter in the north of Syria, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
After the talks with his Ghana colleague Miss Hannah Tetteh on Wednesday, Lavrov said: “We’re shocked with reports saying about 450 peaceful Kurds, including 100 children, were slaughtered in the north of Syria.”
“The scale of violence is too high and it is necessary to put an end to it,” the minister said.
“Earlier, we saw any members of the Security Council refuse to condemn terrorist acts in Syria. They believe that whatever cynical it is those who commit such acts struggle against the regime. This position is absolutely unacceptable,” Lavrov stated.
