Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, warned of the gravity of using the pretext of the chemical use to fulfill geopolitical interests for foreign powers and states against Syria.

In a press statement in Moscow on Monday, Lavrov renewed the Russian stance that calls for solving the crisis in Syria through dialogue and halting violence.

Lavrov said that there are states and foreign powers that consider all means are good for toppling the regime in Syria, but the issue of using weapons of mass destruction is very dangerous and unacceptable.

The Russian Foreign Minister stressed that such geopolitical game hinders investigations of the use of chemical weapons near Aleppo on 91th March, blaming the states that want the UN Secretary-General not to reply directly to the demand raised by the Syrian government to the UN to investigate the issue of a terrorist group's launching a missile loaded with chemicals in Khan al-Asal near Aleppo.

On the western demands of investigating in other areas in Syria, Lavrov stressed "the supporting evidence of such allegations were not given to any side or by any side in whatever time before, but rather intelligence circles including ours talked about the non- existence of any facts that support these allegations."

" No change has taken place in the Russian stance regarding the crisis in Syria," he said replying the allegations published by some Lebanese media outlets after Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov's visit to Lebanon on a change in the Russian stance.

He clarified that his country has worked since the very beginning on calling everybody and all those who have influence in the situation not to support any particular side, as it also asked all parties to halt violence and start deliberations without any pre-conditions, reminding that this stance was present in Geneva Statement.

"There is a move to re-Sovietise the region"...

As reported by the Financial Times, on Thursday, hours before meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a news conference that the US is to prevent Russia from integrating more closely with its neighbors in Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

"There is a move to re-Sovietise the region," said the US Secretary of State. "It’s not going to be called that. It’s going to be called a customs union, it will be called Eurasian Union and all of that. But let's make no mistake about it. We know what the goal is and we are trying to figure out effective ways to slow down or prevent it."

On October 6, 2012, the Spanish government has agreed to participate in NATO's anti-missile shield that will see specialized United States warships based at a Spanish base already used by the U.S. Navy.

Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria said Spain and the U.S. had sealed the deal Friday to use the base in southwestern Spain as part of the shield, enabling four U.S. Navy destroyers and some 1,400 operators to be deployed at the base.
Moscow has long opposed the shield and called for binding guarantees from the U.S. and NATO that it will not target Russia.
The Pentagon also has units at Moron air base in southwest Spain, with a presence of some 4,250 military personnel and 1,000 civilians in the country.
