MOSCOW, October 24. /TASS/. It has become more evident that Washington’s target is not to battle against the so-called Islamic State terrorist organisation outlawed in Russia, Chairwoman of the Russian State Duma lower house committee for security and counteraction to corruption Irina Yarovaya told reporters on Saturday.
Earlier in the day, in an interview with the Vesti v Subboty (News on Saturday) television programme Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov dubbed the U.S. refusal to coordinate the counter-terrorism campaign with Russia as "a big mistake".
"The certainty of Russia’s goals in Syria is evident - the fight against IS terrorism," Yarovaya said. "So the aim of our appeal to cooperate with the U.S. is also clear and it is the same - the fight against terrorism."
"The silence of the United States and its refusal to promote this cooperation with Russia make it clear for the international community that the struggle against Islamic State is not a goal for Washington," she said.
