BELGRADE, December 3. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recalled a Russian saying that means "guilty mind is never at ease" in connection with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s claims that he allegedly has evidence that Russia is involved in oil trade with the Islamic State terrorist group.
"I haven’t heard that statement. But it is strange that it was voiced many days after the issue of illegal oil trade got to media, when we presented specific facts," Lavrov said.
Earlier, the Turkish president said as quoted by AFP that he allegedly has evidence that Russia is involved in oil trade with the Islamic State.
He explained that he believes such evidence is accusations against a Syrian businessman who, according to Erdogan, allegedly buys oil from the IS. Ergogan claimed the businessman "has a Russian passport."
