Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s answer to a media question on the sidelines of the Second International Parliamentary Forum, Moscow, July 1, 2019
Question: What comments would you like to make concerning yesterday’s air raid carried out by the Israeli Air Force on Damascus? Fifteen people have been killed.
Sergey Lavrov: We are establishing the facts. We flew in during the night, so we would like to find out what happened there. However, one of our principles is that the resolutions of the UN Security Council, which are in place, must be respected and fulfilled. We will proceed from this in assessing the actions of any players in this region.
