Lavrov insists that Russia takes utmost precautions in carrying out strikes in Syria

According to the minister, Moscow is ready to investigate the accusations of alleged air strikes against civilian facilities in Syria but no such facts have been presented yet

"Our Western partners are not rushing to speak against this practice," Lavrov said. "This shows that the West is somehow ready to fight against ISIL (former name of Islamic State terrorist group) but still shields Al Nusra. Apparently, it continues counting on this illegal group," he said.

"We want the efforts of the international community on overcoming the crises in Syria, Iraq and any other hotspots to be sincere, fair and not accompanied by attempts to score any geopolitical points," Lavrov stressed.
