Russian President’s special representative to the Middle East and North Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Bogdanov affirmed on Monday that his country respects sovereignty of the Syrian state and rejects establishing a no- fly zone on its territories.

“Sure, we are against that, all should respect sovereignty of that country,” Bogdanov told reporters in comments on reports about establishing a no-fly zone following the latest developments.

He added this proposal is not based on the UN charter or the international law.
