The Spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, blasted the U.S.’ Ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Power, on Sunday for her comments regarding the Syrian Government and military.
Zakharova called on Power to visit Syria before speaking about the war conditions.
Earlier that day, the U.S. envoy to the U.N. stated that Zakharova should be ashamed of herself for accusing the U.S. of cooperating with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).
“Dear Samantha Power, in order to learn the meaning of the word ‘shame’ I would advise you to visit Syria and meet people there,” Zakharova posted on Facebook.
“Do not visit with Nusra, nor with the moderate opposition regarding the delivery of humanitarian aid for which Washington is so ‘concerned,’ about. Do not with those living in the West, who are so concerned about the prosperous future for that country, but meet people, who live there, despite the fact that for almost six years already their country undergoes a bloody experiment, with an active involvement of Washington,” Zakharova added.
Zakharova invited Power to visit Syria together, at the Russian official’s expense.
“That trip would be much more breath-taking. Do agree. No fears. Nobody will touch you if you are there with me. But for a possible chance, where yours “by a mistake” deliver a strike somewhere special. You will have things to remember. And, besides, will be able to learn what ‘shame’ means.”
