Lavrov: US reckless actions caused calamity in the Middle East


Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the US’s reckless actions have caused disaster in the Middle East region.

Speaking at the Moscow State Diplomacy Institute branch in Tashkent, Russian top diplomat Lavrov said countries such as Iraq and Libya have split as a result of US actions.

“The reckless actions of the US and its allies caused disaster in the Middle East region,” Lavrov said, adding that the situation around Iran has worsened.

The Russian diplomat also said the United States is trying to compete unfairly and is obstructing World Trade Organization activities.

“By exploiting illegal sanctions and abusing the status of the dollar, the US is trying to impose its own decisions on other states,” Lavrov said.
