"During the conversation a sincere exchange of views on the developments in Syria and near it, including taking into consideration extreme violations of Syrian sovereignty has taken place… The Russian side stressed that Moscow condemns the aggressive actions against sovereign Syria, which is a UN member state, and consider them as unacceptable and contradict the principles of international law," the statement said.
