MOSCOW, December 6. /TASS/. The Kremlin regrets that the international community is reacting "more than modestly" towards the attack on the Russian Defense Ministry’s hospital in Syria’s Aleppo, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
"We regret that the world community, including our partners in the United States, reacts more than modestly towards the tragedy with the shelling of our hospital in Syria," Peskov said.
Peskov refrained from suggesting who is behind the attack. "The shelling has taken place, it was targeted, and this shows that the militants who carried out this shelling had the coordinates."
Russia would welcome a more active position of the Western partners on solving the humanitarian crisis in Syria, he stressed. "We regret that now the Russian side is in fact alone trying to provide humanitarian assistance to the citizens who leave eastern Aleppo, fleeing the militants’ captivity. We would hail a more active stance of our Western partners in this context."
Peskov rejected the speculation of some Western mass media that Russia is allegedly unwilling to reach an agreement with the US on Syria until Donald Trump takes the reigns as US president. "This is not so. Putin and Obama had a chance to briefly exchange views (in November on the sidelines of the APEC summit) in Lima, they discussed the Syrian affairs and agreed there that the work will continue."
The two presidents believe that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry are working on this and "various options and proposals are being considered." "An exchange of views is underway, but the situation is not developing in an easy way," Peskov said.
