Western intervention in Syria risks ‘new waves of migrants to Europe’: Lavrov

Moscow (Russia) (AFP) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday warned that Western intervention in Syria would lead to new waves of migrants to Europe.

Even small acts could “lead to new waves of migrants to Europe and a lot of other developments that aren’t at all needed, either by us or our European neighbours, and can only gratify those who are protected by an ocean,” Lavrov said at a press conference in Moscow.
