Russia Sends Stern Warning to Saudi Arabia over their support of Syrian terrorists

Russia Sends Stern Warning to Saudi Arabia
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russia warned Saudi Arabia against providing Syrian rebels with anti-aircraft missiles after the kingdom expressed a keenness to extend its support to the Free Syrian Army.
In a statement to the press, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed grave concerns toward Saudi Arabia’s insistence to provide Syrian rebels with high tech weaponry when it has been established that such weapons often found their way to terror cells, Islam Times reported.
Moscow warned that it would not allow Syrian rebels to be given anti-aircraft missiles and anti-tank missiles. Saudi Arabia has recently purchased weapons from Pakistan in view of supplying Syrian rebels against Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.
Minister Lavrov stressed that Riyadh’s move aimed to change the war dynamics, especially since Al Assad’s forces proved far more superior on the ground than ever anticipated.
Lavrov declared that should such high tech weaponry ever land in the hands of terrorists the entire Middle East region would be thrown in the midst of a violence never witnessed before.
It is important to note that in recent months Saudi Arabia has been keen to tighten its relations with Pakistan as to ensure that it would benefit from a steady supply of weapons.
