Lavrov: We Do not Trust Information Included in UN Reports on Situation in Syria

 MOSCOW- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said that the information included in UN reports on the situation in Syria depends on committees that have not conducted investigations on the ground, according to SANA.

”We do not trust any information from the UN reports on the situation in Syria because they rely on committees that have not conducted investigations on the ground,” Lavrov told a joint press conference with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in Moscow Thursday.

 In turn, Guterres stressed the importance of joint efforts aimed at resolving the crisis in Syria.

  He added that work is underway to create suitable conditions for resolving the crisis in Syria and that the UN is in close contact with Russia to preserve unity of Syrian territories.

 According to Itar Tass,  Lavrov said that the UN independent commission used remote methods of work in its report on Eastern Ghouta, Russia is skeptical about that.

"The commission does not travel to the site using data in social networks. They allegedly interviewed 140 people," Lavrov said. "We are skeptical about such remote methods."
