US presence in Syria contradicts with international law: Zakharova

MOSCOW, (ST)- Spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova has stressed that the US presence in Syria contradicts completely with rules of the international law and it is part of the aggressive acts that have been committed or backed by Washington in different parts of the world like in Yugoslavia, Iraq and other countries.

"Washington also violates the agreements it has signed with the United Nations," said Zakharova, pointing out that the U.S. has recently stopped giving visas to representatives of some foreign countries who want to visit New York to attend UN events.

 The US unilateral withdrawal from the joint comprehensive plan to settle Iran's nuclear program also violates the Security Council resolutions on this issue, clarifying that the US administration's practices often contradict with the constitution of the United States.
