Russia warns UK against seeking “to destroy Syria’s sovereignty”
Russia has warned Britain against what it calls any attempts “to destroy Syria’s sovereignty.”
“If it [UK] wants to push its ideas through the Security Council it should… give an order to its ambassador at the United Nations to start consultations, including with Russia,” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova was quoted by the media as saying.
Zakharova also noted that Russia has never vetoed sensible initiatives which comply with international laws. However, she warned that any UK military intervention in Syria should not “destroy Syria’s sovereignty”.
