Russia warns NATO, world powers not to interfere in Syria
Moscow: Russia has warned NATO and other international powers that they should not intervene in Syria``s civil war, or set up buffer zones between the rebels and the government forces.
“In our contacts with partners in NATO and in the region, we are calling on them not to seek pretexts for carrying out a military scenario, or to introduce initiatives such as humanitarian corridors or buffer zones,” Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the Interfax news agency.
According to News24, Moscow urged restraint between NATO members Turkey and Syria, where violence along their shared border has strained relations between the former allies.
Tensions have flared since a mortar round fired from inside Syria struck the territory of Turkey.
According to the report, Ankara has threatened to respond if the strike were repeated.
Meanwhile, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, one of Assad``s most caustic critics, lashed out at Russia for blocking U.N. Security Council efforts to exert pressure on Assad.
He stressed that Moscow’s stance will allow massacres in Syria to continue.
