The Russian foreign Ministry: Moscow warns against introducing a no-fly zone in Syria


MOSCOW, February 18. The introduction of a no-fly zone in Syria will lead only to “Libyan scenario”. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

“Statement on no-fly zone were made by the Chancellor, but the idea is not hers, the idea is not new, it is promoted Turkey, said the diplomat. Deputy foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov stressed the fact that such a proposal should be coordinated with the official Damascus. The sovereignty of the country has not been canceled”.

“No one wants “the Libyan scenario”. The international community has already once experienced this concept, she said. – The result is visible not only in Libya, or rather, in Libya it is not visible but can be seen far beyond Libya to Europe.”
