MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. Washington’s policy in Syria and in the region on the whole should be more consistent, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday in reply to a TASS query about the deployment of additional 250 personnel in Syria, announced by US President Barack Obama on April 25.
"If the policy of Washington is so large-scale in the [Middle East] region, we would like to see it more consistent," Zakharova said. "People who consider themselves world leaders cannot change their decision, and of course they should be true men of their word," she went on.
"We would like to comprehend what this is all about: whether this is a one-time action, who these people are and where they will be stationed, what for they are dispatched there and whether this is part of a program or a plan," the diplomat explained.
"Knowing this is important not only for Russia, this is important for all countries in the International Syria Support Group," she said. Commenting on Washington’s earlier promises that there would be no "American boots on the ground in Syria," she suggested they would have to land in Syria barefoot.
On April 25, US President Barack Obama announced that Washington would deploy in Syria additional 250 military. According to the US, their task will be to train local armed groups for fight against terrorists.
