Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s Foreign Minister stated that he has shown his support to the free Syrian Army (FSA) by not targeting the key locations of their program. and said that he is ready to cooperate with the United States in fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group and other factions.
Around 44 people, including six children, were killed in 24 hours due to Russian and Syrian air strikes across the country which have resulted the calls for operation, particularly in Idlib province, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) reported on Saturday.
Russia says its strikes are against ISIL and other “terrorists”, but rebels and the US, which is conducting its own campaign against ISIL and some rebel factions, say Moscow has focused more on opposition forces than ISIL.
“The Americans’ refusal to coordinate their anti-terrorist campaign with us is a big mistake. We are seriously prepared for such coordination,” Sergey Lavrov said on Saturday.
Advocating the necessity and Russian operations in Syria he has added that “We are ready to give air support to the patriotic opposition, including the so-called Free Syrian Army, but we need to get in contact with the people who will have the authority to represent certain armed groups.”
“Instead of talking about their willingness to support the Free Syrian Army, they should stop bombing it,”He added
Russia wants to settle the dispute and has demanded the support of Egypt and Iran to bring out a solution for the disputes.
