  • Syrian official news agency SANA Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad speaks during a news conference in Damascus Syria Saturday

Israel has accused Iran of quietly setting up bases in the conflict-ravaged country and has targeted military positions there, triggering Syrian air defenses that accidentally brought down a Russian military plane last week in an incident that Damascus and Moscow have both blamed on an Israeli raid.

Moscow's S-300 surface-to-air missile defense system has been delivered to Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced this weekend.

"But the negotiations are nearly complete", Indian Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said during a press conference at Indian women's press corps in Delhi earlier this month.

Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Western powers wanted to "retain their self-proclaimed status as world leaders".

Moscow's decision to supply Bashar al-Assad's government with S-300 anti-aircraft missiles and satellite navigation-jamming technology follows the downing of a Russian reconnaissance plane earlier this month.

Russia begins delivering S-300 missile system to Syria as Russian FM says relations with United States are at "all-time low".

Christophe Galtier s'emballe pour Rafael Leão — LOSC
Christophe Galtier , l'entraîneur de Lille, s'est exprimé après cette défaite face aux Girondins de Bordeaux (1-0). Dans le sport, cela se joue souvent dans la tête et les joueurs se posaient des questions.

"We think introducing the S-300s to the Syrian government would be a significant escalation by the Russians and something that we hope, if these press reports are accurate, they would reconsider", he said on Monday.

He was referring to a Security Council resolution that endorsed Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.

In turn, the Israeli prime minister warned Putin about unpleasant consequences that could result from the deal, saying handing over advanced weapons systems to irresponsible hands will increase dangers in the region.

Lavrov also cited the absence of any US-Russia talks on important issues including counter-terrorism, cyber-security, strategic stability and major arms control agreements. The reasons why Israel adopted this strategy are still valid, and it is of paramount importance that Israel continue the campaign to stop Iran's entrenchment in Syria, while preserving a friendly relationship with Russian Federation.

The two parties had previously agreed to a so-called "deconfliction mechanism" immediately prior to the commencement of Russia's anti-terrorist intervention in Syria in late September 2015 which was created to specifically prevent unfortunate incidents such as this one, but Moscow accused Tel Aviv of failing to abide by its commitments after only informing it 25 out of the more than 200 times that it bombed Syria in the past 18 months.

Lavrov, meanwhile, spotlighted Russia's role in efforts to end the civil war in Syria, where the government counts Russian Federation as its closest ally. He lashed out at US policies in Iran, Syria and Venezuela, while vigorously defending multilateral organizations such as the United Nations and warning against unilateral moves by the USA or other countries.
