TEHRAN, Feb. 21 (MNA) – In a meeting with his Syrian counterpart, Russia's foreign minister stressed the continuation of strategic cooperation with Damascus despite the West's intentions to escalate tensions with Moscow.

The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov held a meeting with the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad in Moscow on Monday.

In the meeting, Lavrov said that “The situation is developing at a high speed globally, and this is also related to the situation in the Middle East, North Africa and Syria. Unfortunately, the West is trying to create an aggressive atmosphere towards Russia, and this affects its efforts to implement UN Resolution 2254.”
