Moscow has highlighted that the breakup of Syria cannot be tolerated or else it will become a chain reaction across the entire Middle East. 

“First of all, fight against terrorism must be ended, but it is also necessary to start thinking how to restore Syria’s unity,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

“No division must be allowed, a chain reaction will sweep the Middle East. This is what some would seek to achieve, those for whom it is advantageous to maintain here constant chaos, a mess,” he added.

“In my opinion, about two weeks ago, [France’s President Emmanuel] Macron called to remove sanctions against Qatar, at least in the part affecting the lives of ordinary people,” Lavrov said.

“I urge to lift anti-Syrian sanctions in the degree they have an impact in the ordinary people’s lives.”
