BEIRUT, August 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Official Damascus on Wednesday warned the United States against delivering strikes at the Islamic State (IS) targets in Syria.
“Any unilateral action beyond UN Security Council Resolution 2170 will be considered an act of aggression against an independent state,” Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad said on Wednesday.
Syria’s state-run SANA news agency quoted Miqdad as saying the US “should refrain from using the international community’s resolutions to cover for interference into internal affairs of other states”.
The UN Security Council resolution of August 15 aims to combat terrorist groups, namely the Islamic State and Jebhat al-Nusra, in response to the growing threat in Iraq and Syria.
