Tonight the UN Security Council came at the request of Russia together for a private emergency session on the US air strike in Syria. After the US ambassador Samantha Power, called the meeting hypocritical stunt, the Russian ambassador UN Vitaly Tsjoerkin left the emergency meeting.
The Russian diplomat says to think that the Americans may deliberately carried out the air strikes to frustrate cooperation among the countries in Syria. At the American air attack on an army post in Deir al-Zor in eastern Syria were 62 Syrian soldiers killed. SANA news agency speak of 80 dead and more than 100 were injured.
The Obama administration has expressed regret for the “unintentional loss of life” at the American air strikes on positions of the Syrian army. It would be the first attack in which the US directly affects the army of Syrian President Assad.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry called on the Security Council to condemn the air strikes and demand that the US respects the sovereignty of the government of Assad.
Spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova wants to know if the United States whether the attack was a mistake or that America deliberately support IS terrorist group by bombing the positions.
The spokeswoman told the Russian state news agency Tass that she has come to the terrible conclusion after the attack that the White House defends IS.
The cease-fire in Syria is increasingly violated. Syrian rebels have violated according to the Russians in recent days almost 200 times. Russian President Putin said that the Syrian rebels use the file to regroup. He said the US, which supports some rebel groups, responsible if it collapse.
It is very crooked to claim that this is about a small mistake. There is substantial evidence that the White House is playing a chess game.
