ASTANA, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - The serious crisis in the Middle East and the threats should be neutralized, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Addressing students of the Eurasian University on Thursday, Lavrov said: “On the contrary, the crisis can influence everything in the U.N. Charter.”
“I’m concerned about it as all people do because what has happened in the Middle East can be considered the most serious crisis, which involves many countries. What has happened there is very dangerous,” the Russian minister said.
“This can pose threats if they are not neutralized,” he added.
“The main thing now is to understand the simple truth. Sometimes analysts dispute that it is necessary to invent something to settle the crisis,” Lavrov said, adding, “All receipts are well-known: they are recorded in the UN Charter.”
“Let’s look at the latest years. In every country, which was invaded, the situation became much worse. I don’t mention Iraq. This is terrible. I mean the disagreements between the Sunnites and the Shiites. Many people speculate by trying to provoke a chaos,” Lavrov said.
“The fact that many countries started to talk about the use of force in Syria is very surprising because everyone should realize the harmful consequences of foreign intervention. The events in Libya are very fresh,” the Russian minister said.
