Lavrov: Russia will continue supporting Syria in countering terrorism

Moscow and Damascus agree that "terrorism" is the main threat to stability in the Middle East, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday.
"Russia will continue supporting Syria ... in countering this threat," Lavrov told reporters after meeting Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem.
Moualem said at earlier talks with Vladimir Putin, the Russian president had reaffirmed his resolve to develop ties with Syria and its president, Bashar Assad. (Reuters)
