Lavrov reiterates need to separate so-called moderate opposition from Jabhat al-Nusra

Moscow, SANA – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed the need for Washington to promptly separate the so-called “moderate opposition” from Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization in Syria.

This came in a phone call between Lavrov and US State Secretary John Kerry on Monday during which they discussed the situation in Syria, including the possibility of Russian-US cooperation in combating terrorism, in addition to the issue of preventing the provision of supplies for terrorists in Syria through the border with Turkey.

Lavrov also offered condolences to Kerry over the recent shooting committed by a member of ISIS at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, which claimed the lives of 50 civilians and injured 53.
