Russia Calls On US To Respect Syria's Sovereignty

All countries should respect Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.

"It is necessary to fully respect sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria, as stipulated in the UN Security Council resolution 2254 and other UN documents.

"Therefore, any actions on the ground, and there are many participants, including those who carry out military operations, must be coordinated with Damascus," Lavrov was "ed as saying by Russia's news agency TASS.

Lavrov's remarks came after an American Navy fighter jet shot down early Monday a Syrian regime SU-22 fighter jet shortly after it attacked U.S. partner forces.

Speaking to reporters after the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) foreign ministers meeting in Beijing, Lavrov said: "We call on the United States and all others who have their forces or their advisers on the ground [in Syria] to ensure coordination in our work."

Lavrov said de-escalation zones were one of the "possible" joint options.

"I invite everyone to avoid unilateral actions, respect the sovereignty of Syria and get involved in our common work, which is agreed with the Syrian Arab Republic's government," he added.

He said Russia, Turkey and Iran promoted the Astana process to find a solution to the Syrian conflict.

A cease-fire in Syria brokered by Turkey and Russia led to the Astana talks, which are being held parallel to UN talks in Geneva, to find a political solution to the six-year conflict.

Lavrov added the fifth round of Syria peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana would be held on July 10 and UN's special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, would attend the meeting, according to TASS. -
