MOSCOW, Russia – The consequences of a new US strike on Syria, the possibility of which was stated in the UN Security Council by United States Permanent Representative Nikki Haley, will be very serious, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday according to TASS.
“If a new strike of this kind takes place, the consequences will be very serious,” Russia’s top diplomat stressed.
“Mrs. Haley should understand that it is one thing to irresponsibly exploit the microphone in the UN Security Council and it is another thing when both the Russian and American militaries have communication channels and it is clearly stated via these channels what can be done and what must not be done,” Lavrov said.
“The US-led coalition knows well about that,” the Russian foreign minister said.
Lavrov’s warning comes as a top Russian military commander warned the US that they would not hesitate shooting out US jets in Syria. Full details of this can be read here.
