MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. India can use Russian weapons for any goals that do not contradict international law, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in a public lecture on Russia's foreign political affairs on Monday. He was replying to a question as to whether India intended to use Russian weapons to fight the Islamic State terror organization.

“As any other country, India can use weapons from Russia as well as those delivered from any other country for any goals which do not contradict international law. This is absolutely obvious,” he said.

“The only restriction which we always introduce in our accords and contracts is that an end consumer should not be changed,” the minister said, adding that “If we sell weapons to the Indian army, the Indian army should use them.”

Lavrov noted that if armed conflict breaks out, India can use these weapons as well as American and French weapons, which they have in abundance. “India can decide to use weapons in any way which does not contradict international law and principles set in the arms trade,” he added.
