Setting free arrested Syrian terrorists by US would constitute a crime, Lavrov said, ONA reports citing Sputnik.
"So far, double standards are manifested in that our Western colleagues, mainly in Europe, but also in other parts of the world, do not want to take away foreign militant terrorists captured by Americans and Kurds on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. There is some dispute, Americans are threatening to set them free them, which would be a terrible crime, I think. The European countries, whose citizens are these bandits are, refuse to take them", Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a press conference in Moscow.
Recall that US President Donald Trump urged European countries to take back their citizens who have been captured in Syria after fighting in the ranks of ISIS.
