The United States authorities informed Russia about the transfer of military equipment on the border of Jordan and Syria. This statement was made head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov.
According to him, Washington has warned Moscow through unofficial channels. The U.S. side noted that the reason for this was the need to cut communication lines between the positions of militants of the terrorist organization ISIS* (Islamic state) in Syria and Iraq.
As said Sergey Lavrov, Russia will continue to pursue this issue, as in Syria in terms of engagement can only occur in the fight against terrorists.
The foreign Minister SAR Walid Muallem said earlier that Russia, Syria and Iran have common mechanisms that help to cope with any manifestations of aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic.
* — The organization was prohibited in the territory of the Russian Federation by the decision of the Supreme court.
