When asked at an annual news conference whether the United States and its allies would be a military strike on Iran, Lavrov said, “On the chances of whether this catastrophe will happen or not you should ask those who repeatedly talk about this.”

“I have no doubt that it would pour fuel on a fire which is already smouldering, the hidden smouldering fire of Sunni-Shi’ite confrontation, and beyond that (it would cause) a chain reaction — I don’t know where it would stop,” he said.
