WASHINGTON, 5 Dec — RIA Novosti. The candidate in Vice-presidents of the USA from Republican Mike Pence has sharply criticized Russia’s position on resolving the situation in Syria and called for the deployment of a missile shield in the Czech Republic and Poland.
“USA, the greatest country in the world just left the cease-fire, while Vladimir Putin installs anti-missile system in Syria,” said Pence. “America needs now to create safe zones that families, vulnerable families with children could leave these areas (in Syria). We must work with our actual partners in real time, right now, to do it,” said Pence to the debate with his opponent, the candidate in Vice-presidents from the Democratic party by Tim Kane.
Also, according to him, “the leader of Russia dictates the terms of the United States” in Syria.
“Provocations of Russia to meet the power of the United States. If Russia wants to continue the barbaric attacks on civilians in Aleppo, the United States should be prepared to use military force to strike at military targets of the regime (the head of Syria Bashar) Assad,” he added.
“We also need to deploy a missile defense shield in the Czech Republic and in Poland, abandoned by Barack Obama (the presidential candidate of the Democrats) Hillary (Clinton), in order not to offend the Russians, in 2009,” said Pence.
Russia has repeatedly stated that he accepts the decision to order airstrikes in Syria only after a thorough inspection of intelligence. This message is that the SCC of the Russian Federation allegedly strikes at civilian targets, never found evidence. Allegations of air strikes on the humanitarian convoy at Aleppo the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov called unfounded. The defense Ministry said that Russian and Syrian aircraft attacked the convoy.
Republican Donald trump supports cooperation with Russia in combating terrorism, including in Syria. Democrat Hillary Clinton criticized Russia’s actions in Syria.
