MOSCOW, February 25, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is concerned over media reports about Saudi Arabia’s plans to buy shoulder-fired missile weapons to arms the Syrian opposition, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
“We are deeply worried over media reports citing the gulfnews.com website that Saudi Arabia plans to buy Pakistan-made shoulder-fired missile and anti-tank systems to arm Syrian armed opposition groups based in Jordan,” the ministry said.
“According to media reports, this deal is called to change the balance of forces in favour of rebels in the course of the spring attack by illegal armed formations on Damascus from the southern direction,” the ministry noted. “If such weapons are in the hands of extremists and terrorists Syria is virtually inundated with, the risk is high that such weapons in the long run will be used far beyond the boundaries of that Middle East state.”
“We are also worried over media reports that Jordan’s territory is used to transit of weapons to Syria’s armed opposition and to train militants at training camps ahead of the launching of the above mentioned “southern front” against the Syrian government forces,” the ministry added.
