Only Russia is fighting in Syria with ISIL – spokesman

Moscow. 6 Oct. INTERFAX – the Russian foreign Ministry said that Russia did not meet with support of Western States in combating terrorism in Syria.

“The only country that is fighting terrorism, not only ISIS (banned in Russia – Interfax), but with all the other terrorist organizations in Syria, Russia, at the invitation of the legitimate Syrian government,” – said the Deputy Director of Department of new challenges and threats Ministry of foreign Affairs Vladimir Andreev on Friday on the sidelines of a meeting of the Committee of representatives of Orthodox churches to the European Union.

He recalled that Russia continues to encourage the world community to unite in a single anti-terrorist front.

The foreign Ministry representative expressed the view that the Western countries “protect” “Dzhebhat al-Nusra”, “that may be, then, when ISIS, carried too far, will be destroyed and the brand will disappear, then, perhaps, “al-Qaeda”, “Dzhebhat al-Nusra” back to the forefront”.

“Here’s the agenda, which interrupts the agenda of the global fight against terrorism,” – said the Russian diplomat.

“If an international agreement was executed at least 10%, global terrorism could not have raised his head,” said Andreev, stressing that “Russia is ready to cooperate fully to the Hydra crush”.
