MOSCOW, February 12, 22:13 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry believes the U.S. should have genuine information on the course of events in Syria in the humanitarian affairs and it can only wonder why Moscow’s position on Syria is distorted purportedly and in a very tendentious key, Alexander Lukashevich, an official spokesman for the ministry said Wednesday.
He said along with it that “the launching of the political settlement process in Syria on the basis of June 30, 2012, Geneva communique became possible precisely thanks to the Russian-U.S. partnership.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry’s reaction followed the claims on the Syrian problem that were made at a joint news conference, where U.S. President Barack Obama appeared together with visiting French President Francois Hollande.
Obama said in part, that the Syrian government was responsible for an aggravation of the humanitarian crisis in the country and for a disruption of the previously coordinated schedule of chemical weaponry elimination.
“The truce in Homs and Yarmouk was disrupted several times in the aftermath of provocations of the militants who opened fire at humanitarian convoys - something that UN representatives indicated in their signals,” Lukashevich said. “Laying the blame for this at the Syrian government’s door means a yet another attempt to misinform the international community and to create the necessary propagandistic background for pushing an imbalanced and counterproductive “humanitarian resolution” through the UN Security Council.
