Syrian National Dialogue Congress aimed at intensifying United Nations activities on Syria - Lavrov

There are battles today in Idlib, southern Aleppo, the suburbs of Damascus, and east of the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzor.There was also the mysterious attack that destroyed Russian aircraft at the Hmeymim air base in Latakia.The acting US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, David Satterfield, recently told the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the US government was opposed to Iran's presence in Syria, and that this was a strategic issue.This frank testimony is both important and unsafe.

On Friday, US President Donald Trump again waived sanctions against Iran that were lifted as part of the landmark nuclear deal.

Lavrov also said the USA move "would not calm the situation" in Syria's Afrin district, which borders Turkey, adding that Russian Federation expects Washington to explain its move. "Until now on the ground it's the Iranian militias that are expanding without serious resistance", Sejari told the publication.

The president also condemned the presence of American forces in Syria and USA plots for the country's future, adding: "The plot that the Americans recently have in mind for Syria is against global regulations and a conspiracy for territorial integrity and the security of Syria and the region".

Sejari added that the FSA delegation included recipients of the CIA-led program in question, launched in 2013 and used to supply money, weapons and instructors to select rebel groups opposing the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Half of the force will be made up of soldiers from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, which now controls a quarter of Syria's territory along the borders with Turkey and Iraq.

Earlier, in 2015, it was admitted that a large proportion of the weaponry originally intended for "moderate" rebels eventually found its way into the hands of the internationally-condemned terrorist groups Al Nusra and Daesh, either due to FSA defections or their sale on the black market.
