Russian FM Lavrov Compares U.S. Strikes To War In Iraq


Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the U.S. missile strikes on a Syrian base were conducted under "a completely false pretext," and are reminiscent of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Speaking at a meeting of the Commonwealth of Independent States in Tashkent, Lavrov said the U.S. action could further harm its relations with Russia. (Reuters)
