Russian Foreign Minister: Russia Ready to Sell Arms to Syria


news.bbc.co.uk

Moscow is ready to sell new weapons to Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said.

Mr Lavrov said any sales of weapons of "a defensive character" would not change the strategic balance in the Middle East, without elaborating.

His comments came as the Syrian and Russian leaders held talks in Russia.

Before the talks in Sochi, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had spoken on the need to speed up military and technical co-operation with Russia.

The two countries are preparing deals on anti-aircraft and anti-tank missile systems, reports say.

Israel and the US have been critical of Russian arms sales to Syria.

Syria was a close ally of the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

It seems that this "Russia vs. the Western World" situation is escalating more and more each day.

Need I remind people that World War One just started with a single assassination which led to one escalation after another until we had a world war on our hands. I'm not going to be surprised to see the same thing happen here, and this will just be another piece of the puzzle when we look back in history.
