SOCHI, May 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russia does not supply banned equipment to Syria, nor does it conceal information about supplies under signed contracts, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday in comments on western reports alleging Russian supplies of upgraded Yakhont missiles to Syria.
"As for the reports on supplies of armaments from Russia to Syria, I don't understand why the mass media are trying to make a sensation of it," Lavrov said, "we haven't concealed that we supply weapons to Syria under signed contracts without violating any international treaties or our legislation."
"We foremost supply defensive armaments," he added.
