Russia remains committed to the agreements on the southern de-escalation zone in Syria, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
“Russia did not pull out of the memorandums agreed jointly with the United States and Jordan on July 7, 2017 and in November that year on the de-escalation zone in Syria’s southwest,” the diplomat said.
“We confirm the need to fulfill these provisions, including on the fight against terrorists – Al Nusra and the Islamic State (terror group, outlawed in Russia),” Zakharova said.
“It’s high time our American partners did what the Syrian forces are doing now with the support of Russia’s Aerospace Forces,” she said.
According to the diplomat, the US administration’s decision on the additional funding of the White Helmets organization casts doubt whether Washington sincerely wishes to eradicate terrorism, and to achieve settlement and stability in Syria.
