LONDON - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday that supplying the Syrian opposition with weapons was illegal under international law, a day after Britain floated the possibility it might bypass an EU arms embargo to do just that.

"I think that international law provides for the fact it's not possible and I think that arming the opposition is a breach of international law," Lavrov told a news conference in London via a translator.
