MOSCOW, February 22 (Itar-Tass) – The United States’ refusal to condemn the terrorist attack in Damascus demonstrates that there is the danger of departure from the fundamental principle of unconditional condemnation of any act of terrorism, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated on Friday.

He recalled that “practically all members of the UN Security Council were determined to condemn the perpetrators and organisers of the terrorist attack in Syria.” “However, this was not done, first of all, because our American partners, already not for the first time, refused to unequivocally condemn the attack, trying to find additional formulations that directly or indirectly would justify those is thus fighting the regime,” the minister said.

“We regard this as the manifestation of a double standard approach,” the minister said. “We see this as a very dangerous trend of the American colleagues’ departure from the fundamental principle of unconditional condemnation of any act of terrorism - a principle that ensures the unity of the international community in the fight against terrorism.”
