Lavrov condemns Iran’s threat to destroy Israel, also fixation on Iranian threat
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov Monday condemned Tehran’s remarks that Israel should be wiped off the map, but he also criticized the viewing of regional problems through the prism of conflict with Iran. He spoke at the opening of the Vladai International Discussion Club’s conference on “Russia in the Middle East: Playing on All Fields.” Tensions between Israel and Iran are escalating and there are historical reasons for that, Lavrov said. “We have stated many times that we won’t accept the statements that Israel, as a Zionist state, should be destroyed and wiped off the map. I believe this is an absolutely wrong way to advance one’s own interests,” said the Russian foreign minister.
“By the same token, we oppose attempts to view any regional problem through the prism of fighting Iran,” he noted. This is happening in Syria, Yemen and even the latest developments around the Palestinian issue, including Washington’s announcement of its decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, are largely motivated by this anti-Iranian stance.”

Ruskies speak out of both sides of their arsholes.
When it comes to Israel, the Shia mullahs are motivated only by quranic bloodlust.
Words expose the thoughts. Mr. Lavrov is contradictory. I don’t think Russians are misinformed I think they are lying.
So Iran willbe nuked soon.
Gee, thanks, Mr. Lavrov ! Now that we know, that “Israel’s destruction” is a no-no for you, we can all sleep peacefully, can we ?! What hypocrites, that you and the entire Russian M.E. policy is !
All this proves that Israel has been right over the last 50 years to arm itself to the teethes and invest billions in armaments. Israel can only rely in herself for her survival… neither the US and even less Russia can guarantee anything. Russia’s goal only is to create a split between the US and its allies, that the only way to understand Russia’s moves in the world. The passiveness of the US is the most dangerous thing happening right now. They should open a network of military bases across Syria to counter Russia and Iran who walk hand in hand.
