“Even during a global pandemic, US officials continue with their unabated anti-Russian campaign propagating baseless, malicious information.

According to the Russian diplomat, it was Washington who fired the conflict in Syria by aggressively backing any group waging a war against the legitimate Syrian government, while Russia and Turkey “are trying to bring stability in the region.  “Provocative statements coming from Washington demonstrate once again that they want the war in Syria to continue,” he added.

“By the way, Pompeo’s words of support to Ankara (over Idlib) lead to a simple question: does this mean that while counting on help from its NATO ally Turkey in western Syria, where they want the current instability to be preserved, Washington notoriously betrays them in the east of the country, in Kurdish regions which the Turks see as a threat to their security,” the source continued. “We are assured that Ankara sees through Washington’s hypocrisy and double standards.”

The Russian diplomat said that Syria’s eastern region  continues to remain under US control who “continue to shelter the ISIS and other terror groups and promote separatism among Kurds in an attempt to threaten the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic.”

Earlier, the United States for the first time directly held Russia accountable for the deaths of dozens of Turkish troops in Syria. An airstrike last month in the Idlib region killed 34 Turkish soldiers, although Ankara blamed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the assault.
