Russia says it will safeguard "its assets" in Syria if the United States plans to bombard the military airfields of the Syrian government.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says Moscow will continue arming the Syrian government in its fight against the Takfiri Daesh terrorists, urging other countries to take a similar measure and help Damascus in the battle.
Russian officials have on numerous occasions underscored that Moscow does not support Assad personally, but rather backs him as "the legitimately elected president" of Syria.
The Russian foreign minister says any attempt to isolate Moscow from the international community will undoubtedly fail.
He emphasized conflicts between Israel and Palestine should not be forgotten.
A regional media reported recent agreements between Iranian and Russian officials on bypassing outrageous Western sanctions on the two countries.
