UNITED NATIONS, September 30. /TASS/. Russia confirms its readiness to take part in the upgrading of combat readiness of the Lebanese Armed Forces and law enforcement agencies, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday at a meeting of the Lebanon Support Group.

"We give unconditional support to the people of Lebanon in opposing the terrorist and extremist groupings like the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra," Lavrov said. "We confirm the readiness to continue upgrading the potential and combat readiness of the Lebanese forces as they stand up to terrorism."

"We recently signed supplementary agreements on the supplies of specialized equipment to Lebanon," he said.

He also said Moscow shared Lebanon’s concerns over the inflow of around 1.5 million Syrian refugees into its territory.

"We’re rendering assistance along the channels of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, as well as along bilateral channels," Lavrov said. "But it’s clear that an earliest possible peace settlement in Syria and assistance to the Syrian government is needed to create the conditions conducive to the return of refugees."
