    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the international community is taking on the Syrian settlement and providing for full-fledged participation by all Syrian, ethnic, and religious groups in the peace negotiations.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Turkey’s actions are disrupting efforts in settling the crisis in Syria, including the ceasefire and delivery of humanitarian aid, and requires the international community to respond, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.

    “I believe that this demands efforts that the international community is taking on the Syrian settlement and providing for full-fledged participation by all Syrian, ethnic, and religious groups in the peace negotiations, as well as efforts to provide for halting military actions, and demands a tough and clear reaction from the international community because Turkey’s activities are, as a matter of fact, disrupting these efforts that are being made, including with the UN Security Council’s approval, and on issues of the ceasefire, and issues of delivering humanitarian cargoes, as well as issues on the beginning of the political process,” Lavrov said during a joint press conference in Moscow with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry.
