US claims that the Syrian government is responsible for chemical attacks in Latakia province may undermine the possible improvement of the situation in Syria, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin told reporters on Friday.

“It seems strange to us that every time some positive shifts happen, first of all in the political process, statements emerge that may undermine the improvement of the situation in Syria,” Vershinin said.

The diplomat reminded that the UN investigation into all instances of chemical attacks in Syria is still underway. “That’s why we regret that our US partners made such statements [accusing Damascus of chemical attacks] unilaterally,” Vershinin added.

US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said earlier that the Syrian authorities are responsible for the chlorine attack in Latakia province on May 19.

When, and on what occasion, has Pompeo made this statement?

They only see their crapaganda as practical in this case… I think that we’re likely to see another round of US strikes similar to the one in 2017 and the one in 2018 as there still were none in 2019, and again, I doubt it will impede SAA operations in any way again… Remember that Pompeo also declared a few months ago (February f I remember well) that US were “ready to back Assad’s presidency”… IMHO, what is sought by US from Assad is to declare Syria’s neutrality… As the carrot didn’t worked… It also seems that the Israeli strikes… Read more »
