MOSCOW, August 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russia resolutely condemns attacks by radicals in Syria on the peaceful Kurdish population, deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s information and press department Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
“We consider their actions as aimed at triggering ethnic confessional enmity, undermining the unity of Syria and security of the whole region,” the diplomat said.
Moscow intends to consistently seek that “the Syrian authorities and all opposition groups, where we also see the Supreme Council of the Syrian Kurds, assume common commitments at the international conference on Syria that is underway, to liquidate or expel from Syria all terrorist and extremist organizations connected with Al Qaeda,” Zakharova noted.
