Russia doesn’t support international intrusion in Syria, but backs reforms in that country, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in an interview on Wednesday. The situation in Damascus doesn’t pose any threat to international security and peace, he added. Lavrov also said that Syria is an important country in the region and attempts to destabilize it could have “repercussions far beyond its borders.” The minister warned Europe and the US to not back anti-government demonstrators in Syria who may seek military assistance like that offered to anti-Qaddafi forces in Libya.
