“I have heard the comments of U.S. military representatives. It is
not the first time when the concept of security zones and no-fly zones
is mentioned. If these zones are going to cover the territory of the
Syrian state, this will constitute a violation of its sovereignty and of
the U.N. Charter,” he said in an interview with Sky News Arabia.

Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton said on Aug. 11 that Washington and Turkey were looking
at all measures to help Syrian rebels fighting to overthrow
President Bashar al-Assad, including a no-fly zone.

Lavrov said there exist special mechanisms and instruments for easing
the position of refugees and displaced persons. “UN Under-Secretary
General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos has been in Damascus and
other parts of Syria these days. There is the consent of the Syrian
government to resolve these issues,” he said.
