Russia claims US trying to divert attention from airstrikes on Syrian Army
LAVROV ON RUSSIAN TV
“I would like to emphasize
that the Americans and their Western allies, for one thing,
want to distract public attention
from what had happened in Deir Ezzor”,
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Russian television on Monday
following the urgent meeting of the UN Security Council.
"The US and its Western partners are trying to steer the world’s attention
away from their airstrikes on the Syrian Army
by accusing Russia of attacking a UN humanitarian convoy outside the Aleppo...."
Kerry appeared to be “pinned down
by stark criticism from the American military apparatus,”
which may indicate
that the US military does not comply with its commander-in-chief’s orders.
“[President] Barack Obama always supported, as I was told, cooperation with Russia,
and he confirmed it himself during the meeting with [President] Vladimir Putin in China.
It seems to me that the military may not be obeying their supreme commander too much.”
