MOSCOW, November 15. /TASS/. The facts of civilian casualties resulting from UN-unauthorized bombings of Islamic State positions, quoted by the Independent International Commission of Inquiry for Syria under the UN Council for Human Rights, are alarming, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
“On November 14, the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Republic, established by the UN Human Rights Council, published a report entitled Rule of Terror: Living under ISIL (Islamic State former name was Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). It was drawn up under Russia’s request and supported by another 17 states,” the Foreign Ministry said.
“One cannot but feel concern over the facts the Commission mentions deaths of civilians in the course of UN-unauthorized bombings of ISIL positions in Syria by the United States and its allies,” the Foreign Ministry said.
“We fully share the Commission’s call for the resumption of intra-Syrian talks with the aim of normalization of the political situation in the Syrian Arab Republic,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said. “Joint work against terrorism must become one of the key topics of a dialogue between the Syrian government and a credible delegation of the Syrian opposition."
