Russia Urges US to Separate Opposition from Terrorists in Syria

Russia Urges US to Separate Opposition from Terrorists in Syria

Alwaght- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov affirmed that efforts to resolving the crisis in Syria would bear fruit if the United States kept its promise to separate the “opposition” from the terrorists.

During a meeting with the participants in the national Educational Youth Forum in Russia’s Vladimir Region on Friday, Lavrov said that about a year ago, during negotiations with former US Secretary of State John Kerry, Moscow and Washington were able to agree on a settlement approach in Syria, which was constituted real progress. He said the pact provided full consensus in the work of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the US-led coalition, and the only requirement in this agreement was the US commitment to separate the “opposition” that it supports from terrorists.

Lavrov believed that the political process in Syria would progress significantly if the Americans actually carried out their promise.

He said that ISIS terrorist organization will undoubtedly be defeated but it is hard to say yet when it will happen.

“There are a lot of signs that some external players have been protecting Jabhat al-Nusra terror group, while the US has been silently encouraging them,” Lavrov said.

He pointed out that despite the clash between ISIS and al-Nusra Front, they are similar as al-Nusra is included in the UN’s list of terrorist organizations, yet there are indications that some external players, perhaps with implicit encouragement by the US, are preserving it and there is suspicion that their goal is to use al-Nusra against the Syrian government after the complete defeat of ISIS.

Different foreign-backed terrorist groups have been wreaking havoc in Syria since 2011. Over the past few months, Syrian forces have made sweeping gains against Takfiri elements, who have lately increased their acts of violence across the country following a series of defeats on the ground.

Syria blames the US and its regional allies especially Saudi Arabia of being the main supporters of the mostly Wahabbi Takfiri terrorist groups in the country.
