MOSCOW, August 23 /TASS/. Any attempts to flirt with Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria are fraught with fostering another terrorist monster, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in its comments on the US policy in Syria.
"Any attempt to flirt with Jebhat al-Nusra is fraught with fostering another terrorist monster," the ministry said.
"We and certainly not only we consider the American line in Syrian affairs to be slightly inconsistent and illogical," the Russian Foreign Ministry said. "The Americans are putting up new and new conditions with an aim to give a respite to Jabhat al-Nusra and its combat allies to enable them to continue an armed confrontation with the government troops," the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
"Suggesting that American and other partners give up destructive rhetoric, we once again confirm readiness for responsible and efficient cooperation in fight against a universal terrorist threat in Syria and in the region," the ministry went on.
"We are ready to keep on doing all we can, including in collective formats, to help the Syrians achieve an early settlement of a lingering crisis in the Syrian Arab Republic on coordinated international-legal basis," it said.
