During a telephone conversation on Monday with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov described the US’s missile strike on a Syrian air base as impermissible. The two diplomats agreed that the Syrian crisis cannot be settled by military means and that joint work is necessary to maintain cessation of hostilities and boost the intra-Syrian process of negotiations in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions and decisions of the International Syrian Support Group.
