Continued correspondence skirmish between Russian and Western diplomats, which arose over a dispute on settlement of the situation in Syria. Washington threatened that the intransigence of Moscow will turn into the terrorist attacks in its cities, and the Russian foreign Ministry made it clear: it seems that Washington has already given the appropriate command from its terrorists.
Another diplomatic row erupted after the speech of the official representative of US state Department, John Kirby. During the briefing, he said that extremists in Syria continue to expand call their actions, taking advantage of the power vacuum, and their attacks there will be attacks on Russian interests, and possible Russian cities.
“Russia will once again get the bags with the dead military to waste its resources and maybe even aircraft,” – he stressed.
The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova did not hesitate to answer. On his page on Facebook she asked the American colleagues to clarify, does this mean that terrorist attacks will take those “moderate”, of which half Washington cannot be separated from Nusra?”
“Do not you think that such ventriloquism about the “bodies in bags”, “terrorist attacks in Russian cities” and “loss of aircraft” is more like a command “bite” than review of a diplomat?”, – she added.
Note that the head of state Department John Kerry in a telephone conversation with Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov said that Washington is ready to continue cooperation with Moscow on Syria.
