MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. The Kremlin cannot take seriously UK foreign secretary’s accusations against Russia of prolonging conflict in Syria, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
"Russia is taking massive and sustained efforts to help Syrians in the fight against terrorists, international terrorists that present a threat not only for Syria, but also for the whole world," Peskov said. "It is illogical and wrong to make such statements. The main thing is that is contradicts the essence of the efforts Russia is making," he added.
The Kremlin spokesman noted that such statements "cannot be taken seriously" adding that Russia’s reaction to these statements was already voiced by a spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry. Peskov said that Putin will not react to UK Foreign Secretary’s Philip Hammond’s statements on this matter.
