ABU DHABI, February 2. /TASS/. London’s accusations against Russia over Syria are groundless and are not based on any facts, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday after talks with his Emirati counterpart Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
"Talking about statements from London and other Western capitals describing Russian Aerospace Defense Forces’ actions in Syria as not contributing to settlement, we are used to such statements as they are not based on any facts," Lavrov said.
"They reflect the concern of our Western partners that Aerospace Defense Forces are working effectively in Syrian airspace and fulfill the tasks that the international community faces - in what concerns countering terrorist threat," he added.
