Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the United States is protecting terrorist groups such as the Syrian "victory front" from bombing.
Lavrov said during a press conference with his Ethiopian counterpart that the US sponsorship of terrorists has recently emerged, as it protects the Fatah al-Sham front from the aerial bombardment.
Lavrov stressed that this contravenes all international conventions and laws, calling for the need to eliminate double standards and unclear ideas in the fight against terrorism.
On the field situation in Syria, Lavrov said there has been a marked decline in levels of violence since the announcement of the establishment of tension-easing areas.
Lavrov noted that the cease-fire, the delivery of humanitarian aid and the return of the population to their areas are monitored without any impediments.
Lavrov said he hoped the next round of talks would help resolve the Syrian crisis and help push forward the UN-brokered Geneva negotiations on Syria.
