Russia warns potential US military surge in Mideast to create new risks

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, commenting on US President Donald Trump's intention to additionally send 1,500 troops to the Middle East, said Monday any increase in military potential would result in new risks, ONA reports citing Sputnik. 

“As for President Trump’s decision to send 1,500 troops in addition to those deployed in the Middle East and North Africa region, well, you know, always when the military potential grows, the risks increase. I very much hope that the sensible voices that are heard from Washington, including the respected former military leaders, politicians, diplomats about the recklessness of the idea of war against Iran, will be heard," Lavrov told reporters.
