Friday, 04. December 2020 19:39

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (pictured) claimed on Friday that the "illegal" presence of the United States forces in Syria presents an obstacle to "the restoration of the country's unity."

In addition, the minister criticized the "West" for placing sanctions on Syria, alleging that it "sticks to its policy of economic strangling" of the country "even when humanitarian issues are raised."

The United Nation reported today that the latest round of peace talks concluded in Geneva, with all sides agreeing, for the first time, on an agenda and to meet again next month.
