Russia: Israeli air strikes in Syria could further destabilise situation

MOSCOW, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Israeli air strikes on the territory of Syria might lead to a further destablisation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a newspaper interview.

“Such actions ... further destabilise the situation and could lead to an escalation,” pan-Arab daily newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat quoted him as saying.

“Syria should not become a platform for implementing plans or settling accounts. The main task of all concerned forces must be to help restore peace to Syrian territory.” (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova; Writing by Anastasia Teterevleva; editing by John Stonestreet)
