Commenting on accusations from representatives of the defense Ministry that the American government is duplicitous stance in the fight against international terrorism, U.S. state Department spokesman said that the White house never supported the group ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in Russia).
“The statements of the defense Ministry after the death of Russian General in Syria that the US supports ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in Russia – approx. ed.) or was complicit in this tragedy, do not have evidence. The US and coalition have the same goal: the defeat of international terrorism… Comments made by Russian officials are not truthful and do not help the case,” he said.
