Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov had revealed the characteristics of the policies of his country towards the Syrian crisis.

As for the cooperation with both Iran and Turkey, Lavrov said that the final results for the three countries are close, “however they are not completely identical in every way with the policies of Iran and Turkey, our partner in Astana’s operation, but we all want to end this war and create the suitable conditions for Syrians to be able to determine their own fates by themselves and without any external interferences or attempts to present solutions for the ruling system of their country”.  

Lavrov announced his invitation to the US President, Donald Trump to “prevent the repetition of the mistakes of his predecessor, Barak Obama, whose team had vowed to distinct between the Syrian opposition and “Nasra Front”, however, he did nothing about it”.
