MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. A broad anti-terrorist front is forming in Syria thanks to steps taken by Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the meeting with students and teachers of the Diplomatic Academy on Wednesday.
The stake on hegemonism and exceptionalism has already led to the growing instability and chaos, and "should be thrown to the trash can of history," Lavrov stressed. The current situation in the Middle East and North Africa is one of vivid consequences of these "illegal unilateral actions" seen over the past years, he added.
"The export of democracy has not only failed to bring prosperity, but also plunged the region into anarchy, sparking the outbreak of terrorism and extremism," Russia’s top diplomat said. This resulted in bloody terrorist attacks around the world and the migration crisis in Europe.
"For rectifying the situation, energetic steps are in demand aimed at creating a broad anti-terrorist front that, thanks to consistent Russian steps, is forming in Syria," Lavrov said, calling to help people of the region to "carry out political, social and economic rehabilitation of the Middle East and North Africa."
