Putin: France should not be offended by veto on Syria, Russia


Russian President Vladimir Putin at the investment forum “Russia calling” commented Russia imposed a veto on the French resolution on Syria. He noted that Russia still values its relations with France, but Paris should not be offended by this political move.

“Not that our partners need to be offended by the situation on this veto our resolution in French, it is likely that we should be offended” – said the head of state.

Putin said that Russia initially supported the initiative of UN special envoy on the withdrawal of fighters from Aleppo and waited for constructive work with France and with other members of the UN security Council. But then the French foreign Minister flew to Washington, where U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry accused Russia of “all mortal sins”.

Putin noted that Russia’s position was known, so the resolution of “catapulted” to a Russian veto and “to promote anti-Russian hysteria”.
