MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. Fighting Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization should be in accordance with international law, Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday, commenting on US plans to train the Syrian opposition to counter IS extremists.
"The inefficiency of the so-called ‘anti-terrorist coalition’ headed by the US is explained by the fact that the coalition was set up bypassing the UN, international law and without Syria’s participation," the diplomat said. "That is why our position stays the same. We think that fighting IS, which is emerging and expanding in the region, must be in full compliance with norms of international law, in accordance with agreements reached with these or those countries," he said.
