Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has rejected recent comments by British Prime Minister David Cameron that Russia has changed its stance on Syria.

Lavrov told Echo Moskvy radio on Thursday that the comments were “inappropriate for a politician at such a high level.”

Cameron, who met with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico, told reporters on Tuesday that “it is welcome that President Putin has been explicit that he does not want Assad remaining in charge in Syria,” news agencies reported.

But Lavrov said leaders “should not interpret the content of their conversations this way.”
