MOSCOW SLAMS U.S. THREATS AGAINST SYRIA: RAISE EXTREME CONCERN
Russian Foreign Ministry, condemned the US threats, to take unilateral steps against Syria, stressing that, such irresponsible statements provoke deep resentment and concern.
In a statement, on Tuesday, the Ministry said, Such belligerent and irresponsible statements of the US representative (at the Security Council, Nikki Haley), raise indignation and extreme concern.
Growing concern is caused by the incoming information on gunmen, preparations to imitate the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government troops against civilians, as the basis to justify US unilateral strikes against Damascus and government facilities in Syria, said the statement.
The Ministry said, such criminal actions may also create a threat to the lives of Russian military advisers, including representatives of the reconciliation centre in Syria, adding that, In this case, required retaliatory measures will be taken.
It stated that, it was a blatant hypocrisy on behalf of Washington, to make statements in favour of the political process in Syria, while the US forces are occupying a significant part of Syria, in violation of the UN Charter and the international law.
In fact, Washington is doing its utmost, to cover up and preserve terrorist groupings, which are active near Damascus and in other provinces of Syria, the statement said. At the same time, the real situation in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta, which terrorists use to systematically shell residential areas of the Syrian capital, is distorted.
