Russian Foreign Ministry: US strategy to fight ISIS fully inefficient
Washington's strategy to fight ISIS had proven to be fully inefficient, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov said.
“We are pointing out to Washington the complete inefficiency of US anti-ISIS strategy,” he stressed.
According to the minister, the Russian side has been deflecting and will deflect the US attempts to hamper the eradication of the terrorist hotbed in Syria.
"In this context, we will continue to emphasize extremely clear that we have harshly deflected and will continue to deflect the US attempts to hinder the quick and final elimination of the terrorist hotbed in Syria, slow down the offensive of the Syrian government troops," RIA Novosti cited him as saying.
Moreover, the Russian minister also slammed as absurd "the situation where an external force which is in Syria illegally, without the permission of the Syrian government, starts defining geographical boundaries for the actions of the Syrian army which is carrying out the operation to liberate its own country of terrorists."
Thus, it seems that the United States simply wants to prevent the Syrian government troops from defeating ISIS, Syromolotov added.
