Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on the United States to abide by its borders and not to interfere in the affairs of other countries.

At a press conference today in Mozambique, Lavrov criticized the US ambassador to South Africa and his administration's allegations about South Africa's supply of weapons to Russia, saying: "If something seems from the US ambassador or any other ambassador abroad from beyond the ocean or from beyond the sea, he generally needs to know its limits and not interfere in relations between Moscow and Pretoria."

Lavrov reiterated that Russia never violates international norms on arms supplies as the West does, by pumping huge quantities of modern long-range and unsafe weapons, including those it uses in Ukraine.

The US ambassador to Pretoria, Robin Breguetti, claimed at a press conference last Thursday that South Africa is supplying the Russian army with weapons and ammunition, in reference to the arrival of a Russian ship at the naval base Simonstown in South Africa and its stay for two days during the period from 6 to 8 December 2022, to return after that to Russia, while Brigitti apologized for his statements and admitted that he crossed red lines after receiving an official protest in this regard from the Ministry of South African Foreign Affairs.
