Reacting to a recent US missile strike on a Syrian airbase, Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra has stressed that Syria’s territorial sovereignty must be respected.
Speaking in Algiers on Friday, Lamamra urged “respect for the international legality and the sovereignty of the Syrian state.”
He also said that the conflict in Syria had to be resolved politically. He said “the use of violence will just complicate the situation in this country and torpedo diplomatic efforts.”
The comments came one week after the US warships in the eastern Mediterranean launched a barrage of 59 Tomahawk missiles against Shayrat airfield in Syria’s Homs Province.
