“We also back these governments by massive supplies of weapons and military equipment and effectively enhancing their combat capacity,” Lavrov said during an open lecture on Russia’s foreign policy in Moscow.
Lavrov said the situation in Iraq, where the US forces have been deployed for over 10 years, shows that the “concept of artificially imposing recipes of state forms of government and social and economic development is absurd.”
“Today this country, which is our friend, and which Americans planned to turn into an example of modernization or democratic role model for all the other Arab nations, is struggling against the deepest foreign policy crisis which is threatening the existence of Iraq as a single state,” Lavrov said.
Lavrov also stressed that Iran and Syria are allies in combating terrorism.
“We drew the attention of our colleagues when Iran was not invited to the Geneva conference, and both Iran and Syria, which are fairly the allies in the fight against terrorism, were not invited to the conference on Iraq,” Lavrov said.
At talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry last week, Lavrov said Russia will not get involved in any antiterrorist coalitions set up in bypass of the UN Security Council and in violation of international law.
A US-led coalition has launched airstrikes in Iraq and Syria against the targets of the Islamic State (IS), also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).
