MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. John Kerry’s statement on the necessity of a probe into Russia’s operation in Syria is obviously meant to divert attention from Washington breaching the Syrian ceasefire deal, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.
She said Kerry’s words can be explained by Washington’s non-fulfilment of its liabilities under the agreement on ceasefire in Syria.
"The American side was simply unable to fulfil the ceasefire agreement. They told us themselves that they have no levers of influence on the opposition," she said in an interview with the Dozhd television channel.
Russia has suspended its agreement with the United States on the disposal of weapons-grade plutonium due to a cardinal change of the situation, Maria Zakharova explained.
She cited the agreement’s provision providing for a possibility for either of the signatories to withdraw from the agreement in case of cardinal change of the situation.
"You don’t have to be an expert to see that such a change has already taken place."
