"We reiterate that any use of force against Damascus based on far-fetched pretexts is unacceptable," he stressed at a ministerial meeting of the guarantor countries of the Syrian ceasefire in Kazakhstan’s capital of Astana.
"The United States’ recent threats to carry out unilateral attacks on Syria and Damascus in particular, like it happened last April after the Syrian government had faced groundless accusations of using chemical weapons, are unacceptable and inadmissible," TASS cited Lavrov as saying.
"We have made it clear for the United States through diplomatic and military channels," the Russian top diplomat added.
