Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has stated that militants who refuse to leave Aleppo will be destroyed.
“In any case, if anyone refuses to leave politely, then they will be destroyed, as I understand. There is no other way,” he said on the results of talks with Council of Europe General Secretary Thorbjorn Jagland.
The Russian defense ministry also noted that, resultant of the December 2nd meeting between Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry, “on the proposal of the American side in Gevena, in the coming days Russian and American experts should begin work on the problem of Eastern Aleppo.”
“The goal is the complete withdrawal of all militants from the eastern part of the city, which Russia has long been standing in favor of. We will also have to agree on routes and the timing for militants to leave. Once this happens, a ceasefire will enter force to begin their evacuation,” the defense ministry’s report reads.
