“It is a open justification of terrorism. How can this be understood?” he said at a press conference in Moscow on Wednesday.
Lavrov was commenting on U.S. Department of State officials’ statements that the terror attacks in Damascus came as no surprise in the context of the regime’s operations.
Lavrov also expressed surprise that the UN Security Council had refused to condemn those terror attacks. Washington’s UN envoy Susan Rice said that the terror attacks in Damascus point to the necessity to adopt a resolution on Syria in compliance with Article 7 of the UN Charter which allows sanctions up to use of force.
