Russia: American Syria policy encourage financing for terrorists
BAGHDAD - America's Syria policy encourages the financing and supply of "terrorist organizations," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday during a visit to Iraq.


US policy "encourages extremists who are financing terrorism and supplying terrorist organizations and groups with weapons," Lavrov said in remarks translated from Russian into Arabic.


"In the end, this will not result in anything except the escalation of the Syrian conflict," he said at a joint news conference with Iraqi Foreign Minster Hoshyar Zebari.(AFP)
