Lavrov comments on calls to turn Iran’s isolation into military confrontation
Russia has warned the international community against unreasonable attempts at escalating Iran’s isolation into a military scenario, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.
"We want calm to return to this region. It is necessary to normalize relations between the Persian Gulf states, and also outside players should avoid fomenting differences," TASS cited him as saying.
These are objective differences, but it’s a bad sign that they are trying to shift them from an ideological and political perspective to a military angle, Lavrov noted.
The Russian Foreign Minister expressed hope that the Arab countries of the Persian Gulf understand that calls to bring the policy of isolating Iran to a "military scenario" are "risky."
